After a hectic week at work it was nice to come home on Friday night and water all the vegetables and chill out before dinner. After the windy weather we have had some of the climbing beans and runner beans have a bit of wind damage, but I'm sure they will pick up again soon. I did manage to harvest some French beans this week and there are so many little ones everywhere I am sure to have lots more next week.

I had eight courgettes this week so decided to take some into work for the girls. They were delighted and I took Katy in some fresh farms eggs so she could try the recipe I found on She tried it with my home grown spring onions and fresh parsley 'Envy' and said the onions were really hot and the recipe was lovely. It’s a shame I didn't sow another lot of spring onions, as I had no idea how good they would taste! As luck would have it when I got home the Marshalls seed catalogue arrived. So I decided to order some seeds and I will try the over-winter variety 'Guardsman' along with turnips 'Tiny Pal' as they look really good.

My peas have finally made an appearance and I have about six, just enough for me to eat whilst weeding next week! Now I know I can grow them successfully I will grow more for next year.

Well that's it from me for now as I am only taking a quick break from house-work so I can have a day off tomorrow!

Happy gardening. Amanda.
