Elephant garlic ready to see me through the winter and the last of the cucumber and tomatoes. The rocket and sorrel will keep going for a while though hopefully. I'll plant some more elephant garlic soon, it always does okay and I love the fact that it starts shooting just when the year is turning to winter. Although most things are dying away and having a rest, it's a reminder of new growth and a new season. Oh, and it makes me feel like Monty Don as well, who always has some on the go.
Thank you for your recommendations re food, and it's good to know I'm not alone in the pain of making tea that people will eat. I very much like the look of Pick Up Limes which Catherine recommended, and I love that you can choose a recipe by ingredients. Aren't food bloggers brilliant? It all looks so exquisite. I sometimes toy with the idea of doing Instagram, but it is all so beautiful over there, all fantastic food photography and cosy corners and scrumptious desks, I do love the desks and the notebooks. Most it is brown and untidy and repetitive round here and once you've admired the elephant garlic I haven't got a lot else going on.
Today's drama involves the car, which has decided that sometimes it will start and sometimes it won't. It's not fixable without a chunk of money being thrown at it, so it may be new-to-me car time. Sigh. In the meantime, every journey has the excitement of wondering if I'll be stranded. Although the biggest urchins could easily push me down the road, should they be around.
I think all the talk of decluttering the other day subliminally pushed me into tackling the littlest boy's room. It is small and full of dust. Or at least it was. Some things have gone in the bin, some things are in the resting place, where they will wait and see how big the drama is over the fact that they are missing. If they are not missed, then they will move on to the rehoming place that is the local Sort-It Centre or the charity shop. He hasn't seen it yet and I am bracing myself. He is generally furious. They all claim to know exactly where everything is until I interfere.
