Tea was home made scones with cream and jam - plum, damson or mixed fruit, take your pick! Just to prevent any confusion, in Yorkshire, we have dinner at dinner time (1.00ish) and tea at tea time (6.00ish). It's only posh southerners who have lunch at dinner time and dinner as their evening meal......unless we're going to a restaurant in the evening, in which case we're going out for dinner.... but if we're going round to friends for an evening meal, then it's still tea! I bet you're dead glad I clarified that for you?!
Anyway, moving swiftly on! A quick tour round the vegetable garden in all its prolific glory!Sweetcorn, courgettes, squash, parsnips,radishes, chard, spinach, runner beans, with raspberries along the right hand edge.
Leeks, red and white onions, garlic.
The new salad bed - onto its 4th rotation of salad leaves - not bad considering .......
Purple sprouting broccoli, broccoli Romanesco and vertus cabbages.
Broad beans, peas, mange tout and runner beans ...... but all was not well in the broad beans.
I also found a new variety of ladybird that I'd not seen before - anyone know what variety it is?
A little (camera shy) black and white bee on the heather
A moth I found on a woodpile I was clearing last weekend
It's not just the fruits (and veg!) of my labours - it's the flowers and plants too!
