After a somewhat blowy night which has tested the recent fence repairs an absolute treat, we have woken up to a gloriously sunny day.
After breakfast, it was up into town to do some basic shopping and get some frozen mangoes as this is the latest in dessert line that we have discovered Hubby can eat. I also bought quark and yogurt to go with it if he doesn’t fancy custard. Ice cream has currently been kicked into touch as we can get more frozen fruit choices in the freezer.
Stew for dinner today which was really scrummy, and tomorrow will see us having cottage pie (one purchased) with extra veg for me and see how that goes down. What is left of the stew will be our final meal as it’s not really sufficient as a main dinner.
Town is quiet. The kids are on Easter break, but the street and supermarket had few people in them. We did see several without masks and avoided them by going down different aisles.
Fresh produce is looking very sad, but has anyone else in the UK noticed a shortage of tinned peaches? We can get a HUGE tin for £1, or four individual little tubs for £1.20, but a traditional sized tin of some 400g is like hens teeth. We tried the Coop, and tow other shops that sell tinned stuff, but neither of those sold fruit at all.
When we got back, after a cup of tea, we went outside and planted our onions.
The tomatoes and cabbages that Hubby started off in the greenhouse are saying ‘hello’ above the soil and our leeks have gone nuts, even if they are last year’s and were pretty pathetic in the summer.
Just about to go out for a walk now, our first of the day and it won’t be far as Hubby has twisted his knee so we’re not pushing our luck.
Hope your day has started off well.
Keep safe everyone
