Reginald’s legacy

I mentioned in my previous post the state of our garden.
Hubby and I got out there before the next band of rain was due to hit and tidied up what we could.
The tomatoes are overladen, so we have cut them back, tying up the remainder to give them some support in the new wind. I’ve put some of the vines on the window sill in the kitchen (you never know, the fruit thereon might ripen), had the four ripe ones for my lunch and put the remaining green ones in a bowl. I may well be trying the fried green tomatoes in the next few days.
Something else caught my eye as I was bending over the toms, and I picked these:
There are loads to come so they will be picked and frozen down when young, sweet and tender, but for these guys? We had them today.

I had intended to do a roast dinner, but Hubby didn’t fancy that, so as he preferred a light meal and we are still trying to get his diet sorted with this reflux problem, this is what I did.
Plain boiled rice, our cooked and sliced green beans, topped with the chop I’d cut into cubes and cooked in water in the frying pan. No sauce, no garnish, just plain cooking.

The lettuces in the supermarket yesterday looked ready to walk out on their own, so I bought a prepacked mediterranean mix which included peppers and will do me two days.
Like Hubby, I had our green beans and the chopped pork, but added a spoonful of very low fat mayo to the salad. See that little red guy on the bottom right? That’s one of the tomatoes I picked today. Sweet isn’t he (and yes he was…….. very).


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    They may just ripen, my Dad picks the green ones regularly to keep the squirrels from chomping and ruining them and they always seem to ripen. They look yummie!!

    How marvellous to be able to eat your pwn produce. 🙂
