While he put his feet up yesterday, a very rare occurrence, I got some jobs done in the garden. Doug piled up some large prunings in the trailer a while ago and, as they were dry, I cut them up into the wheelie bin for Monday's collection. I then removed all the cauliflower plants. Because of the weather I left the plants in place when I picked the caulis. Anyway, I pulled them out and cut them up into the compost bins.
We are pleased with this year's vegetable garden. The carrots have done really well and, when I have weeded and got some ground ready I must sow another lot. All the greens did well and I was amazed at the sugar snap peas, I picked some for lunch yesterday and today.
I also had a long phone conversation with my stepdaughter in New South Wales and then went for the usual walk and had just got home when Doug's eldest daughter called in so we had a chat with her.
Today we have had squally showers and Doug has got his foot up again and was joined by both Kim the cat and Sophie, the Labrador. I made an apple upside down cake. I think it must be reasonably healthy as it is made with ground almonds and not a lot of sugar. The only butter is in the topping. It doesn't look as attractive as previous ones, a bit pale but actually tasted better.
As I had the oven on I made Doug a batch of Anzac biscuits and we put some in the freezer. After lunch I went for the usual walk and then we had a cup of tea and small piece of cake. Very tempted to have a second small piece but will resist the urge.
