Rainy Day




What to do when the rain stops for a bit in the afternoon? Run outside to check the pots are not swamped, harvest the beans and courgettes and take a few photos. The gorgeous pink dahlia was given to me as part of a mixed bag and all the tubers have bloomed, easily and with no fussing over. In fact they sat in a bucket for a good few weeks before I planted them out. My newly planted lettuce seedlings are enjoying the big drink from the sky and the beans have been blanched and frozen already. I have a very moreish recipe for the courgettes to share with you but that will have to be another day. I can tell you that it involves garlic, cream and white wine and is highly addictive!
