Today I have dug up my potatoes and I've just scoffed them - yummy yum yum yum!

There weren't many though, not sure why, and I dug about and got them all....mmmm, never mind.

Anyway, they were yummy with a little olive oil, salt and pepper...mmm.

Here they are just after they came out of the pan.

New neighbours

Here are our new neighbours. They are in the field at the back of our house, on the other side of the river.

Last hols day

Today is my last holiday day for a while as I am back to work tomorow. Although I really love my job I really love being home as well:-)

We have been busy and have painted the hen house a delicate shade of green; here are the before and after pics.

The garden is looking good as well. The sweet corn is really impressive. I've never grown it before so I'm hoping that we get some yummy cobs. You can see the runner beans are flowering next to it so hopefully we will have beans soon too.

While I was out snapping DH came to feed the chickies

there was one egg:-)

Here's a pic of my tomato plants. No tomatoes yet but not to far off I'm sure.

Some pics at last!

So, I finally got round to figuring out how to take pics with my phone and get them out of the phone and into my laptop! lol.

Here are Meredith and Isabell in the garden, check out their parasol, neat or what. They also have a pink one, but I am borrowing that for my garden table at the moment.

Here they are again checking me out! What are you doing mum?
Meredith is on the left, she is in charge ( and don't you forget it!) Isabell is on the right, she has plenty to say all of the time.

Do you like my rainbow chard?
It's very pretty isn't it, tastes good too, yum!
DH and I also went out for lunch today in Wells as it's market day with lots of foodie stalls - veggies, meat, cheese, jams and chutneys - all very scrumptious.
We had lunch and then browsed the market - got some sausages for tea tonight, proper ones!
I also got some achillea - 3 for £10, bargin! I got two red ones and one yellow ones.
Then we went to Mandy Wools, one of the best yarn shops ever, and guess what? yes, that's right I BOUGHT YARN again, lol. But seriously, it's really fab.
It is TivoliAran, Celtic Superwash Aran and it's 100% pure wool, 100g at £3.45 each and I bagged 11 balls which should be more than enough for my Central Park Hoodie. The yarn does feel a bit scratchy but I figure that I'm gonna be wearing it as a jacket so that won't matter.
Happy days!

1st blog post AND

Today my Kemtex Acid Dye Kit excited that I read the instructions in the bath! lol.

Any way, DH and I were gonna go out for lunch with a friend and I have lots to do before Malborough Jazz Festival so I decided to hold off on the dyeing...mmmm and concentrate on gardening, chickens and washing the washing mountain - nice drying wether here at the moment so shame to waste it, although its also NICE DYEING WEATHER as well.

Now though, lunch is off, so I'm gonna have a go:-)

Until I get a camera this is gonna be a pictureless blog lol!
