The post that is...and did you really expect anything else from me after such a long silence??? Again!!!
Well I have been incredibly busy trying to get on top of things...and then relaxing and cooking and working and cleaning and improving...inn fact October was a very busy and productive month!!
The allotment certainly resembles more of an allotment now than it does a pasture and there are crops growing nicely for the winter.
I finally got all the potatoes out of the ground, half or the plot had had a winter dig in preparation for the colder months and most of the trees have had a real good pruning.
Still a few trees to prune but I ma waiting for the green bins to be emptied this week before I can finish those and at that point I will be able to get the last bit of winter digging/weeding done too!!
Last weekend the weather changed and the temperatures dropped phenomenally...can't complain though after all the lovely weather we had in October...and so warm.... there were times when I was still just working in a t-shirt!
Right now I am sat on the sofa and outside it's cold and wet....this is a plus...it gives me time to sit and relax and let all of you know what I have been doing...and even though it's raining I am happy with where I am right now as regards work done an yet to be done on the plot. I have even managed to get the garlic and broad beans in on time this year...Yay me!!!!
Another one of my work colleagues is pregnant and I have something in the pipeline for that which I will share with you on completion...and now the colder and darker days are here it is time to get out my knitting and finish those jumpers I started last year...one is for a friend and I would really like to get it to her before Christmas...Laura if you're reading this, don't worry I haven't forgotten!!
Trojan is as adorable as ever and is currently laid flat out and occasionally snoring in front of the T.V. but don't worry, it's not on....I don't like him to watch too much hehehe!!
As for the hubby and the boys they are bickering about WOW...the joys of computer games..lol
Of course on top of all that I have been playing a lot with the dehydrator and coming up with some delicious...and a couple of gross goodies. I do have a cook book for it but most of the time I have just been winging it with creativity and seeing what happens!!
I'm quite surprised.... this isn't as much of a ramble as I expected..... and I now seem to be running out of things to say. I do have plenty of photos to share but thought I would do that over the next week so as not to inundate you with too much after such a long silence and I am sure you will all appreciate more pictures and a lot less words over the next week after this!!
So I guess that's me...now I have time to catch up with you all.
Have a great weekend!!
