Just had a look in the cupboard and I think we'll do veg soup for lunch tomorrow and then mushroom risotto for tea- don't need to buy anything for either of those so another NSD again. I've told the sprog that we'll make chocolate chip cookies tomorrow as well and have all the stuff to do that in the cupboard.Sewing project is almost done (about another hour or two left) so I'll get that finished tomorrow morning and then get into the garden after lunch. I planted a tonne of veg and fruits out there 3 weeks ago and they're all doing well. Need to get the next load of carrots, spring onions and a pumpkin (we're trying to grow our own Halloween pumpkin this year) planted out tomorrow. I've got my usual haul of strawberries, tomatoes and peas outside but this year I'm also growing broadbeans, sweetcorn and potatoes for the first time. We moved to our current house (rental) in 2016 and thing I love most about it is the garden. We live on a really quiet new build estate but at the very edge of it so right next to farmland as well. We're on the end of a close of 8 houses and because we're on the edge of the whole estate all the spare inches of land for each house got pushed up until they reached our plot and didnt have room for two more houses and so we have four times the garden of the standard house pattern. So we have a garden that wraps around the house on 3 sides and has three beautiful mature trees at the front (a sycamore and 2 ornamental cherry trees) So there's lots of grass, lots of borders and lots of hanging baskets everywhere and I found a nifty little device that lets you suspend a hanging baskets from each concrete fence upright post. I even put in a herb border which has come on really well even if my cat insists on sitting on the Rosemary plant!
