It seems that I can't manage to multitask in the wee small hours of the morning. After a church ladies with babies group meeting, I have been reading the bible instead of thinking about the garden and blogging. Which is a good thing. Apart from neglecting the garden. Hm. And still lacking on the photo front. Hmm.

Quick update:
Still eating courgettes
Eaten Coxes Orange Pippin apples, first production by tree planted 2011 - Toddler loved choosing her own
Eating cabbage (and trying not to think about slugs)
Curing pumpkins - tiny, very small and reasonably sized
Planted red onions and garlic in Bed B
Dug over Bed D, leaving wild pansies, and applied old compost

Had an exciting trip (in car! Husband away) to pick up cooking apples from a lady's backgarden. She advertised her bumper crop on freecycle so we got permission. Making lots of stewed apple for crumble and apple puree in preparstion for weaning. Found a recipe for apple peel cider but probably won't bother.

Came home from the post office depot via a walnut tree that had shed its load, so dyed my hands then some gloves getting the husks off. Not very large nuts but suitable for cooking. Fortunately the folks came back from France via a tree whose walnuts were immense.

Toddler enjoys these outdoor pootles, it gives us something to do, and Reginald is fine in a sling.

This multitasking means staying awake longer. Better resign myself to not keeping track of the garden until I have a spare half hour in the day. Pah!
