I rummaged around under the jungle that is my garden and dug up enough potatoes for dinner. I love digging for spuds, revealing hidden treasure. However, I LOATHE putting my fingers through the half-rotten original seed potato. Urrrrgh.
Some tomatoes I found today. These are Latimer Beefsteak. I have totally neglected them and yet they still give me this bounty! Last season I didn't plant any because we were late getting the garden started etc etc. This year I planted them but then didn't tie them up before I left for holiday and came back to sprawling triffids. So I'm all fired up for next year. If I can get this sort of crop from total neglect, what can I get with tender loving care?!
And for dinner - lovely, lovely kingfish. (Can you see Hubby's fat left hand? He got a paper wasp sting and it didn't agree with him.)
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We have been busy building boxing for a concrete retaining wall in the new shed, moving the chicken enclosure, relaxing and trying to stay cool. Now onwards and upwards to Monday.
