Well this weekend was much the same as the last. Bright sun one day, cold the next (with the entertaining addition of howling gales and pouring rain), helping my friend at a dressage show, riding – and making flapjacks 🙂
Said howling gales and pouring rain have decided to stay put too; autumn’s definitely here!
Also similar to last week was the arrival of a box of something delicious:
Something different was this:
I gave my dad some melon plants for his birthday in March, he planted them in the greenhouse… and look at it! I took a chunk yesterday and although I’ve never been a huge fan of melon, finding it a bit tasteless, this one was so good. I think it’s the same as with any home-grown fruit and veg, there’s just so much more flavour.
And talking of home-grown:
I’ve been eating the spinach from my garden, although there hasn’t been that much so I’ve still been supplementing from the supermarket *makes mental note actually to do some watering next year* but the pak choi are just about ready now too – and I’m quite happy with those!
It’s really nice raw, with much more flavour than lettuce, I think, but also a great addition to my dinner Mount Vegerests…
If I just put more effort in, I think I could grow some decent veg but – well. There’s always room for improvement… as also proved by the childish post title – I couldn’t resist… 🙂
