Welcome to my new follower The Gardening Shoe and also a new comment leaver Hazel. Glad to see you both. Hazel, I was going to give you a really useful budget food link, but unfortunately, the blog owner Anne-Marie, has taken it off line. A shame really as it was really useful and the recipes were sheer bliss!
Anyway, not a lot happening today. About 3 weeks ago I sowed some hardy stir fry vegetables in a pot and have finally remembered to pot them on. They look a little weedy but we'll see if they survive, especially as the early part of their life will be in my little greenhouse.
Have pulled the last few bunches of runner beans off my wilting plants. Hopefully, they will be okay and not too tough. I had previously brought in my peppers, chillies and tomatoes. They are now going red so some are in the oven roasting ready to make a soup for lunch and tomorrow. It really is soup weather at the moment.
The weather here in Norfolk is damp, grey and cold so don't think my washing will dry. As we haven't got our heating on yet or the wood burner on often, it will have to take its chances in the conservatory for a few days.
The thing I have noticed about frugal laundry liquid (and using white vinegar as a conditioner) is that the clothes do not readily seem to pick up a musty smell – which is useful.
Bought a half price gammon yesterday. It has soaked overnight and will be boiled ready for tea tonight. It weighs 6lb so that will really give us lots to slice and freeze in 1/2lb bags.
