Salad for Daddy

Jean preparing salad for Alaric

My eldest Jeany and her friends decimated my salad plants in an effort to make my husband Alaric a salad! They harvested the radishes which was a good thing as they were starting to ‘run’ (go to seed) and were getting a bit woody. But though Jean knew what were bean plants and what were radishes the boys didn’t so there were a few fatalities!

They cut up all of the chives, lettuce and quiet a bit of mint! The sorrel looks worse than were the deer got to it (in the old house) and the margoram has some obvious gaps in it! But they all had a fantastic time, they washed and chopped the radishes and stuff too! Alari was very pleased to be presented with a salad and the baby was happily eating the salad from the garden pots!

Also Jeany’s friends are excited about us getting an allotement as they want to come and help on it! Not sure they will still feel that way after an afternoon on one!

Easter Garden Fun

Today me and my duaghter Jean opened the easter egg pressant I had picked up for her in the reduced section of the super market. It was two chocolate eggs, and some marshmellows in a Peter Rabbit plant pot along with some carrot seeds and a little marker.

I got her to fill up the plant pot with potting compost and she sprinkeled a fraction of the seeds – the pot isn’t really big enough for one carrot but she liked doing the planting and talking about how the seeds would grow into carrots to eat.

She then watered the seeds in with her water can – which came with more chocolate eggs and marshmellows in and came from my perants – it leaks as its apparently just a toy oil can but Jean had a fun time non the less.

I’m going to put it on the window sill with the tadpols.
