The greedy months!

After a thorough drenching that filled all the water butts and the pond we now have damp,  misty weather. But the temperature is warm and all the crops (except my carrots!) are growing well. 






We are eating well - nothing gladdens the heart of a Murphy more than digging up the new season early potatoes! Peas and mangetout are also on the table although I'll confess to eating a fair number of the peas before they ever get in the pan.

 The soft fruit is coming on stream and, as with the peas, I tend to feast on the red currants as I pick. The damp isn't good for my strawberry crop although the slugs are very happy. I'm hoping the weather will dry up soon.

A neighbour's hens are laying well and she has brought me a dozen eggs in a variety of colours. I like the blue ones, they are almost too pretty to use! They will be going in a cake to celebrate a friend's birthday at the weekend.

  1. Whenever we've tried peas before, the birds eat all the leaves. Got the better of them this year - grown in tubs in greenhouse and only lifted out once they'd got over 2 feet. They only like the young leaves. Now something else is eating all the peas. It pops the pods, eats the peas and throws the empty pods on the compost heap. Can't think what it is.

  3. Peas straight from the pod are sooo delicious - I don't blame you for eating many of them before they ever make it to the pan :-)

    1. Fresh and free range eggs, so I really do appreciate them. The pond is very small and is home to newts, lovely little creatures. A large grass snake was slithering by the other day so I suspect some of my newts will be eaten!

  5. I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
