My Wheelbarrow runneth over with food and animals : )


The first season of tomatoes in the polycave, come and have a look how they did.
I promise this blog will not contain any unnecessary animals or wildlike or random bits of food n recipes. Do you believe me?

The spare plant bench was looking look (before the rain)

Some cheap spare cyclamens if you fancy one

The front’s still hanging on, those rudbekias go on forever dont they

I just keep fining these fellas in my place, must be some specific good feng shui or someink

Well lets take them over to the pond, come on guys (they can hibernate in winter btw)

GNuts waits for more food to arrive, why try harder eh?

Oi what do you want? this is MY lake

runs up


Straight for the shoelaces, ok ok just dropping these off

King of the castle

That done, GNuts doesn’t bother to chase the chickens much

Hello folks, has this blog started yet?

Fancy another comphrey fritter?, I know you’ve all tried it havent you? add a bit of cheese

Bit of sour cream n toms. Ok ok it doesn’t look that appetising but the comphrey is great and I calculate this dish costs in the region of 10-15 pence ; )
What are you doing to save money eh?

Bang crash, whats all thats noise, Woodley n the cuddly SHULA!!

Shulas’ legs getting longer! Jack just wants a biscuit now

Don’t do that Shula pls

arrgghh Stevie help

No thats NOT kissing Kaia smells biscuit on Jack!

Quick Acer check ; )

Ok loads of blackberries over on the field, bit of sugar, cinnamon and a quick wizz makes for some nice compot

and here they are, my apple scones (apple from the apple tree)

and here’s the recipe
Cost of dish hmmm 15p…what are you etc etc….

and with the toms picked a couple of weeks ago I made some sun(read oven)dried tomatoes.

Was going to make a nice jarful but i’ve eaten them now ; ) lets make some more..

and so here we are in he polycave, come on in

Plenty of toms still to pick, but first a random artistic shot

Ok down they come

some plants have done well


random unnecessary shot

random 2

cutting down stems as I go, ah whats that

ah DDL still there, looks like he clung on till the end

and there we are, this is what its all about

a happy scene indeed

now what’m I goin to do with these

a beautiful thing

beautiful things

Lovely collection on the bench Stevie:) wouldn't mind a plant or two myself.
4 newts? lol. D'Artagnan and 3 musketeers?
So many animals around - maybe you want a kitten? lol
that's a nice crop you got from your tomatoes:)
wouldn't mind a polytunnel myself to be honest. Or maybe I could rent a square meter (or two) from you? how much the rent would be? lol.
there is nothing better than your own organic food. Missing that a lot;-)

Will make my Comfrey Fritters a bit thicker next time, adding the Cheese and fried Tomato.
Wonder if our Medieval ancestors ate them ?
They knew hard times out in the country.

Ah great to see you're on board Db, thats 3 or 4 members now of the Fritter club : )
I read on that link about them being used in batter during the great depression and those folk maintaining their health and not falling ill so I will survive.
Cheers SL.
