Around the allotment

Hello folks hows your week been?
I've been busy hooking of course 
but also had time to pop to the allotment and check on our goodies. 
So have a look at these beauties.

A field of leeks. Really they are, alright field is a bit of an exaggeration but that's a whole packet of seeds growing right there...........we like leeks.

Our tomatoes have finally ripened, it was touch and go for a while. 
They stayed stubbornly green for ages!

Our most successful crop this year, delicious Anya potatoes grown from a bag we bought which sprouted! 

Of course there has to be a pumpkin, since I took this photo it's grown even bigger.

My fruit beds are coming on really well with plenty of delicious raspberries and a few late strawberries.
I feel a roulade coming on!

Well it's nearly the weekend and it looks like it's going t be a good one yipee!
What shall we do?
Bit of gardening, maybe
Bit of hooking, maybe
Bit of picture taking, maybe
Bit of relaxing, definitely!
Hmm that's looking like a packed weekend
So what will you be doing, let me know I'd love to hear from you.

  1. Everything you're growing is wonderful! Leek soup is one of my favorites. How I wish we had the space for a veggie patch. Have a lovely rest of your 'busy' weekend :-)

  2. I have spent the weekend tidying up after people who are well old enough to pick up after themselves! Sometimes it's just easier to do your self...Can you advise me on how you ripened your tom's? Mine are hanging on the plant just being green from one day to the next. My dad says pick them at the end of Sept and wrap them in newspaper. What did you do?

  3. Hi Claire, I know how you feel, at least you know you'll find things if you put hem away yourself!
    As for the tomatoes, we picked them when they were just turning and plopped them in a bowl in the kitchen, which is fairly warm and sunny but that's it, no magic tricks I think just luck! Hope yours ripen and you don't have to resort to green tomato chutney LOL! ♥

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …
