Well, this is a new one by me. Whilst out to dinner my Daughter’s Wife to Be had some New Potatoes and she quite naturally said ‘I love New Born Baby Potatoes’. Me and my Daughter just cracked up. Did you ever hear of such as thing? She won’t have it though, this is definitely what they are called because apparently they are New Born Baby Potatoes . Bless her. Talking of New Born Baby Potatoes I had some Home Grown ones last night. Oh my goodness, they are so creamy and delicious, I never wanted them to end – Little Fatso! I also have some Wild Strawberries in the back garden, these taste absolutely wonderful, like ten Strawberries in one tiny little berry.
Well life goes on as it does, not only am I co-plotting with the Ex-Hulk I have also had to move back into the house until it sells. Guess what? On the day I moved back in we got an offer! Weird an weirder spending six months away from the Ex-Hulk and then coming back to all the doom and gloom of a broken relationship. I get to see my Pooches every day which they are most happy about, I get to sleep in my own bed in the spare room and I get to clean up after the Ex-Hulk – Such Fun – Not! Anyway the sale is going through and now all I have to do is find somewhere to rent with my Pooches – Mission Impossible and I am not kidding! May have to move into the office!
The plot is coming along lovely. I have worked hard to get it tip top. At the moment I only have Potatoes – Pink Fir Apple and Marfona, Peas, French Beans and Onions growing. I have some soft Fruit growing too. Bit sad really but I am hoping to get some Carrots and Beetroot in this weekend. Oh and I am growing some Mustard, Rocket and Wasabi Rocket at home. The Wasabi Rocket packs a punch – I was disappointed at first until I realised I had picked the wrong leaves! I have been focusing on getting the beds ready for my Son’s Wedding flowers, this looms ever closer and I feel I am doomed to fail. I planted some lovely Sunflowers at the weekend, late I grant you but the Slugs have nipped most the tops off. Gits – in two days! I can imagine them chatting away to each other: ‘Oh how very kind of her to offer us such a delicacy’! I have so many flowers at the moment but they will all be over by the 1st September. As for the outfit, don’t even go there! Shopping got cancelled due to ill health. The dress I have for the festival is going to be too big as I have lost about three stone in weight – Slightly delighted but also like ‘Hey what is going on here’! Face wrinkles are increasing with weight lost, definitely going to have to invest in some hard-core polyfiller.
The 200 Birdwatching has come to a bit of standstill. I think I need to go abroad or at least about an hour away from home. The Baby Blue Tits have fledged from the garden, I counted seven that flew from the tree out the back. At the plot I saw a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and then a Greater Spotted Woodpecker with a Baby Blue Tit in its beak, then I saw it again with another one. Nature is a bit sad and beautiful at the same time. Weird and wonderful.
