This weeks flowers on the table are the first of the Alstromeria and the rather small Sweet Williams all from the cutting garden.
First of all a Big Welcome to some more followers - hope you like reading about life in Suffolk.
There's been a lot more rain here this last week, I got woken in the early daylight hours of Thursday morning when it looked like a cloudburst outside. All the water butts are full again so it can stop raining now and it's been quite chilly too - and, with no one to moan at me, I even had the heating on a couple of mornings and evenings.
Two weeks after it started I finally shook off the sore throat/earache/lethargy thank goodness. I was glad it went.......didn't fancy the hassles of trying to see a doctor.
The highlight of the week was the vets deciding to re-open for routine vaccinations, just in time for Polly to get her cat-flu booster without having to start again from the beginning of a long course. They did the usual health check and found she had a wobbly tooth which would need to come out in case it set off an infecton- so it's back in for her next week - that sounds expensive - Ho Hum.
And apart from making jam as mentioned yesterday it's been another week of reading, stitching, watching snooker on TV and the occasional burst of housework. It would be possible to do exciting things like going to a garden centre - but there's nothing I need so I've only been out to the vets and post office..........
Running total of food from the garden 2020
- 9 small lettuces (I now have a gap because the next sowing took ages to get going)
- 4 Cucumbers - and 4 more given away
- a few asparagus spears
- lots of rhubarb
- Few strawberries.
- 1lb of gooseberries
- Strawberries from brother in law
- Good rain for the fruit trees
This weekend I'm just popping out to deliver a cucumber and a jar of jam to my sister-in-law which I'm swapping for lots of puzzle pages from the local paper and hopefully will be able to see the nearest bit of the family too.
Then next week most shops can open but they might be busy so it will just be a supermarket trip I think.
Hope you have a good weekend.
