Probably our fault…………..

If it rains in the UK tomorrow, you can blame us as we cut the front and back lawns today.
Our neighbour did his yesterday, but admitted that it actually looked longer after he’d finished than when he started. Hubby has our mower on the closest setting so that when he cuts the grass every week there is very little in the way of cuttings that need to be gathered and they disperse naturally in the wind (or the birds pinch it for nesting materials).

The lawn does look nice when it’s just been cut though. I expect our neighbour the other side will be out either this evening or tomorrow cutting his. It’s not a case of keeping up with anyone, just the way it goes as we all seem to have our set days for doing things.
I made a lasagna today, using our own tomatoes as my dish in the fridge was getting a little full. I boiled them up first so that I could take the skins off in the hope that Hubby would be able to digest them. Although they haven’t had an adverse effect, there is an effect, so I guess we won’t be growing them next year, and the chutney lady on the main road will be offered a job lot.  I also used one of our onions……… a small one, but it packed a punch bigger than one three times its size.
No runner beans today, but I picked so many yesterday I’ve frozen down about a kilo. Tomorrow promises another good handful, so just a question as to what to do with it.

Thus our week starts………………….

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    So industrious cooking, growing and mowing. If it rains tomorrow i’d clap as we have only had two days with rain in 20 weeks.

    I was on the shed roof throwing apples down to Cyberspouse. So many have dropped off or been blown off. We managed to pick and knock off a good few more. Goodness knows how old the apple tree is, various bits have been chopped off or rotted away over the years before and after we came here, but the apples are good cookers if you cut out the parts maggots have tunnelled into. I left a washing up bowl full at the front gate and left a message on our local Facebook page, they were all soon gone.

    • I miss our bramley apple tree from the cottage. The fruit was huge and I made lots of crumbles and pies, and froze a lot down . We had a particularly bad storm and a lot of the fruit was blown off by the heavy winds, so we bagged them all up and took them down to the woods where we walked the dog every day. We must have had over a dozen bags and left a notice on them that they were fallers and free. By the time we got back, all of the bags had gone.
