We raided the polytunnel the other lunchtime and had 'almost a meal' made out of homegrown salady things.
Radishes, spring onion thinnings, mixed leaves, pea shoots and micro leaves, broccoli in this instance. You pay a fortune for a salad made with micro leaves in a posh restaurant, ours are free merely veggie thinnings. Tasty, tiny little samples of what is to come later in the season.
With two buns, ham for Lovely Hubby and grated cheese for me it made a tasty and very satisfying first meal from the tunnel :-)
The place is a mess outside a proper builders yard full of of building supplies and pallets ...
... but there are starting to be little hints of what is to come.
Arthur, pictured on the last post, is a man of many talents, walling being just one of his finer accomplishments.
At the moment we are living with the constant sound of the cement mixer as the wall grows in height yet again, ready for more concrete to be poured between the two layers on Monday. Tomorrow is to be a day of fencing, aided by a neighbour with his fence post knocker-in attachment, as we put a fence around the nut trees so our friendly local sheep farmer can get his sheep back into the paddocks to keep the grass down without causing any damage to the newest trees. We have decided this is to be our wildlife haven, with rocks already piled up as shady nooks and part of the old tree will be lifted into there by Arthur when he has a spare minute and his digger to lift it with handy.
