Peas please!

We have peas…and it’s about time too! Throughout the growing season I’ve wondered if Id planted them out at the wrong time or wrong place. I think my only regret was not having enough support for them during the heavy downpours we had in July. Certainly something I’ll bear in mind next year.

Veggie plot update

Plentiful picks in the veggie garden these past few weeks, especially with carrots, beetroot, red/white onions, peas, spring onion adding to the usual crop of runner beans, courgettes, cucumber and salad leaves.

About the only things that isn’t quite ready yet are the sweet corn cobs. Leeks to follow soon I hope.

We tried roasted Beetroot the other day for the first time…and it certainly won’t be the last, it tasted fantastic!

With the excess of onions and Cucumbers, we decide to pickle them. Curstie was on chopping detail whilst I readied the jars.

At the moment, king of the greenhouse is this huge Russian beef tomato –  won’t be long before it’s ripe.

Eye Eye.

I was messing around with my camera yesterday afternoon and took the following picture of my eye.

my eye (1024x683)

I was so it was difficult to line up the shot right. Of the 30 odd photos i’d taken this one seems to be about the best. A little touch up in Photoshop was used afterwards. I used my Canon 18-55mm with +4 macro filter.

I wonder what body part will be next 🙂
