It's a Bank Holiday weekend, so what does it do in this country......it rains, it always does, there's no point in getting upset about it. We have a hosepipe ban here in Berkshire and Lovely Hubby has just re-planted all my lovely Lavenders from Jointers into their new bed by the house here, so I for one am definitely NOT complaining.
After giving them a good drink from a watering can after planting we are now letting nature take over. Lavender likes to be neglected, ignored and generally left to it's own devices......my favourite sort of gardening. It leaves me to get on with growing the food, which needs attention, nurturing, watering, thinning out and looking after in general.
So today after I get back from a spot of shoppping, I'm gritting my teeth and playing a Joker, we are sorting out the greenhouse. This picture isn't mine it's a Google pic, I Googled 'tatty old greenhouses' and this was the nearest image to mine. I'll take before and after shots to let you see the actual state of it when we start, at the moment it's raining much too hard to go out and get a photo.
We started the day well with a delicious cooked breakfast of fresh free range eggs on toast with home produced bacon for LH and all the scraps for the lucky dogs, that way when I get to the supermarket I will have a satisfyingly full tummy and will not be seduced by offers and bargains of things we don't need.
The reason for the supermarket shop.......we need a big stock up of fresh fruits and veggies to keep us going until our own produce is available. We feel as though we are coming out of a tunnel of fast food, junk food and food grabbed on the go, and we need to get back to our healthy eating days of last Summer, so one big shop should get us sorted. Mostly fresh things and some frozen fruits and veggies too and I won't have to darken Mr Sainsburys door again for a long, long time. I also have £24.41 available on my Nectar card so that will be deducted from my shopping bill - happy days.
What are you doing this rainy Bank Holiday Monday, or do you have some sunshine, I hope you do.
