Anyway the gas man who came is going to sort it all out for me, have the old stove and packaging from the new one taken away and for half the price of what i was going to be charged just for a standard install. So in a way i am actually saving money. Sigh on my part and very happy...the new stove will be re-delivered tomorrow and then I just have to arrange with the gas fitter when he can come....I am so excited!!!!
Now on to something 'allotmenty', and a little bit funny.....and yet a little of annoyance at myself too.
Do you remember this?
|Spaghetti Squash...A.K.A. a marrow?!?!|
Anyway as i was doing some ground clearing over the last two weeks i found the heart of this plant and also it's label. You guessed it, this is not in fact a marrow or a pumpkin but my spaghetti squash that I planted.
Of course the major annoyance is the mis-identification on my part and the fact that the plant only produced one more fruit so I only have the one to try...on the plus side though, at least I do have one to try.
The funny side is, I wonder what the people opening those 'Marrows' thought?
I haven't tried this yet but will hopefully be giving it a go in the next week now that I know it's not just a marrow I can think up something great to make. Have any of you ever grown spaghetti squash?? If so I would love to hear how you cooked yours.
It's a cold and frosty morning...but I am hoping to keep warm getting some clearing done on the allotment today...fingers crossed!
