New Pages!

I have just had a look around the blog and realised that I need to update some of these pages.  I have made some significant inroads into the garden landscaping and the "Produce", "Flowers" and "Herbs" pages can all do with some updating.  I am probably not going to get much chance to do this before February (crazy working hours at the moment), but I will make an effort to having it look a bit newer soon.

For those of you who are sick of hearing me constantly going on about "excessive produce" you will be pleased to know that I am doing something about it.  There are two new pages in the Blog - "Preserves and Jams" and "Craft Corner".  Still under development but hopefully they will add another dimension to the Blog.  This week I have added my "Spicy tomato relish" recipe.

More to come

January 2012 - update 2

Well after an over cast week, with cold winds and rain, we have had a lovely weekend.  The weeds are returning with a vengence and the zucchini is taking over the side garden.  I have had some good quality eggplants this week, and the tomatoes are still coming thick and fast.  Not having much luck with the raspberries yet though.

Better scram and get making tomato relish, pasta sauce and alike.

All the best

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all and I hope that 2012 is a wonderful one for you.

Christmas was the usual mad house here and the garden was the victim of some neglect.  So it is weeding central for January I'm afraid.

I have managed to produce loads of fruit and veg and am frantically making up various preserves and alike to ensure that I use as much as possible.

On a sad note I have had to remove my favourite pest from the "pest" page.  My neighbour's cat died about a week before Christmas.  Sylvester was an old boy and died peacefully in his sleep from heart failure.

I will make an effort to keep the Blog updated at least once a week.  Thanks for your ongoing interest in my blog.
