Growing Pains

Do you remember this? This was our veg plot about a month ago.

And here it is today.

Unfortunately, you can't see the plants in the bed nearest to the camera! They are so small at the moment, but this weekend I've been able to plant out the sweetcorn, broccoli, spinach and onions. It's very exciting and I am really getting into this gardening lark! I'm even going to try growing some flowers for our garden - shock, horror!

Meanwhile, at Crochet Headquarters - the granny squares are multiplying:
I don't even know how big I want this blanket to be, but quite a decent size I should imagine. I am loving working with all this colour - so much more fun than knitting a jumper in one boring old colour.

Oh, by the way, the piglets are growing!

Poor mum - imagine feeding 12 at once!

And I must show you this little ingenious flask which I have taken to carrying around with me practically everywhere I go. It holds just one cuppa, but it's great to take with you in the car if you're going shopping, or to the allotment (of course). Pretty much any time you're going to be away from a kettle for more than an hour or two! It's from Lakeland and was quite pricey at £12.99, but I think it's going to be worth every penny. It keeps it hot for a good 3 hours.

  1. We have the same mugs! Though I wish I had the same veg patch - mine is empty save for a healthy row of chives. Perhaps I should head outdoors with my seeds...
