During the last 2 months our spending has gone a bit awry due to visitors, a trip back to the UK, our son stayed with us for a month and we had a few meals out, but the last thing we want to do when we have visitors is skimp, so needless to say we went over our challenge budget. We’ve also been making the best of what’s in the veg patch, lots of courgettes, carrots, green beans and cucumbers and we’ve still got loads of delicious new spuds to enjoy. So a warning to those coming to visit soon, you’d better like courgettes and cucumbers.
This little pile of sweet cherry tomatoes might not look much, but they are our only tomatoes so far this year. Earlier in the year, we lost our original plants to blight but a lovely friend gave us some plants that had seeded in her garden. We had no idea what we would get but we’ve got cherry, beefsteak and plum so far, they just need to turn red.
