Well yesterday afternoon was fun!

The mange tout is looking really good and really healthy and it is about time they got some support. The feelers at the top of the plant were getting longer and longer, so providing some old branches for them to lean against prevents them twining themselves with the wall, potting table etc.

Amy got the job done..

Looking good...

The chickens were allowed to free-range before we took Amy's car out for a spin for the first time...

Then just literally before we got in the car, what better than... fresh fruit salad! A mixture of shop bought fresh fruit but the nonetheless satisfying...

Fingers crossed we will have home grown fruit on the menu soon!!

Have a wicked Wednesday!

  2. Thanks for your comment Martin! The bumble pops are as yummy as they look!
