Finally a day to try and catch up with some gardening and other jobs around the house.  I am able to eat bland foods now and poached a chicken which was nice and moist.  I also dug some more of our Jersey Benne potatoes.  We are now picking 6 or 7 varieties of beans,  yellow, green,  purple and green with purple markings as well as cucumbers and courgettes.  Tomatoes are ripening although Doug's granddaughter's ones were well ahead of ours on Boxing Day.

I picked a lovely bunch of flowers this morning as well as doing the usual weekly household chores, changing sheets, washing etc.  Doug is getting on well with the new hutch dresser. 

We skipped going to the market this morning as we have such a good array of vegetables.

    1. It is really good this year - fingers crossed - one never knows what mother nature will throw at one.

  2. Glad you're feeling better. All those beans remind me of my father's garden.
    Beans with every meal!

  3. It's so satisfying to know you've grown something yourself naturally.

    1. Apart from growing naturally I also like to be able to pick when young.
