I didn't go to the lottie yesterday as we were off looking for a wood burner for our lounge room, it took us all day. I was amazed at the vast selection on offer, all very confusing but I think we have made a choice. This one .......... we can put a kettle on the top and make our tea, the glass doesn't soot up and it gives out a goodly amount of heat. It burns wood and is exactly what I want. We will have to have the fireplace altered slightly to make it fit and the hearth needs extending so we don't burn lumps out of the carpet but all very doable.
Today when I went to water the tomatoes I found a whole heap of produce needed harvesting, how does it grow so fast? Beetroot, runner beans, cabbage, kale, purple sprouting, calabrase and a whole heap of herbs. Oh and yes the last load of gherkins and I do mean load. I also brought home some garlic, I'm going to make Jamie's pasta sauce (saw this on Facebook this morning) tomorrow.
I pickled the beetroot and gherkins and the rest is safely tucked away in the freezer. Oh apart from the herbs, I've hung those in the conservatory to dry.
Casserole in the slow cooker and stewed rhubarb for supper. Enough left overs for my lunch tomorrow.
The sun shone and I did get to sit in the garden and drink my tea. My £5 car boot sale table has been rubbed down and painted with a coat of preserver. I'm really pleased with it, just right for holding our afternoon tea.
