I can’t believe I’ve not posted for such a long time. On the other hand so much has been happening, I’ve not had a lot of spare time. A close friend recently had a mastectomy which developed complications so we’ve been trailing to hospital 3 or 4 times a week for close on 4 months, my daughter has undertaken a complete life change which has involved her moving away from the area, we are fostering her cat temporarily and I’m looking after my friend’s allotment as well as my own. That’s enough to go on with.
The allotment is doing just dandy though. Remember the tomatoes? And the sweetpeas? Here they are …
We’ve eaten a gazillion strawberries and made over 20 pots of jam, 15 jars of blackcurrant jam and we may turn into raspberries if we consume many more. What a glorious year for fruit and still the brambles to look forward to. The peas are truly scrumptious, as are my favourites the broad beans. Circumstances have prevented a huge variety of produce, but I’m more than happy with what we’ve got. And the allotment is still the happiest place I can imagine.
Knitting has also taken a backseat this summer, but I felt the itch last night when I unearthed a beautiful cardigan pattern. Unfortunately I need to wait for the arrival of the 6.5mm needles tomorrow and I can crack on.
All for now, off to the allotment. I hope to post more soon.
