Summer into Autumn

Filed under: Uncategorized — spottedblacksheep @ 3:46 pm

Well, the summer is almost over and autumn is definitely starting to show it’s colour.

We’ve had a very busy summer with lots going on, so much going on there has been very little time to tend the blog!

There have been 2 wonderful weeks of Guide camp. It being the centenary year these were extra special experiences for myself, the teenager and my girls. Everyone had a ball and have many memories that will stay with us for a long time.

The garden had it’s ups and downs – we had a glut of potatoes but sadly the rest of the veg weren’t quite as successful, but we learned a lot in the process which is always helpful.

Our plan for next year is to have the shed moved to the back of the garden, giving us more growing space in our patch outside the back door. For next year I think we will plant some things in pots but will only put potatoes in the ground.

That said, the rhubarb which I thought was dead sprouted a new head and has given a s fair crop. The strawberries had no fruit but they have given us lots of new plants!

In addition there is a plan for fruit trees and bushes in the larger open part of the garden.

Baking, making and creating in the kitchen has continued with 3 flavours of jam in the cupboard shortly top be joined by our first attempt at spring onions.

Sadly, crafting hasn’t progressed much beyond a very tidy and organised room. But the winter is approaching so there will be many nights to find activities to occupy us!

One thing I will find more time for is blogging!
