Hi guys. :)
So, the pictures below are my empire, it is a fairly decent size garden, not too big, but it is lumpy and bumpy and i've discovered a few paving slabs down the middle, but the grass has completely grown over it so i'll have to do some digging to unearth them.
|This half i want to use for raised vegetable, fruit and herb beds.|
This is the start. This is going to be for kitchen herbs that i use the most. Funny story about how i got it.
It used to be part of this rather lovely T.V stand... but in my usual fashion i got bored with where it was and wanted it in the corner you see it on now (it used to be on the opposite side)
So, i took everything off but the T.V and started to roll it along (it used to have castors) i obviously didn't think about the weight of the T.V until the castors buckled and i was left holding on to the T.V for dear life to stop it crashing to the ground! So, i took the T.V off (not as heavy as it looks) upended it and got to work screwing the castors back on. but the screws were still in the wood, and because it is so old they had almost welded themselves to the wood, and neither me or The Bearded Wonder could unscrew them! So, The Bearded Wonder had the genius idea of hammering the wood off and just setting it on the floor instead. The drawer above was jam packed full of papers so i decided to save it and re-use it, so The Bearded Wonder could have more space for his ever growing DVD collection (the ones you see are, believe it or not, not even a quarter of his collection)
Isn't hindsight a wonderful thing?
I'm starting as i mean to go on, making chicken stock for soup
Half is in the fridge an the other half went towards this divine chicken noodle and sweetcorn soup (i LOVE sweetcorn) i used spaghetti as it was all i had in the cupboard, but i think Vermicelli noodles would work better next time.
My chives and basil are growing nicely, the parsley seems to be taking a little longer, but the seeds are starting to sprout now at least, i read yesterday that i should have soaked the parsley seeds before sowing, once again, hindsight.
I've made a start on crocheting a cardigan, this is the back, believe it or not! It seems to have shrunk! But, that may be down to the pattern (making it up as i go along) It still goes across my back, so it'll do ;)
On completely unrelated note, this wee man lives up the road and i got to stroke him this morning! I clicked my teeth at him and he came trotting up, without a care in the world and asked nicely for a scratch behind his ears :)
Isn't he adorable? :)
I also picked some more cow parsley and some forget-me-nots to add some much needed colour
What have you been doing this week so far?
