Sunday lunch

I am quite pleased with myself this afternoon, not only did I cook a delicious Sunday lunch but most of it was home grown.

We had:

potatoes - look YS is so talented he grew them himself. Maybe now he will believe me when I tell him he will grow potatoes behind his ears if he doesen't wash...
Delicious roast lamb, home grown french beans (two sorts), homegrown broad beans, carrots (we'll gloss over those shall we?), homegrown roasted garlic - yummy!
 While we are on the subject of garlic mine seems to be growing bulbs half way up the stem - is this normal? never seen this before...

For pudding we had berries picked by OS

didn't he do well?

So I have a new camera and my gardening mojo is back thanks for all the support.
Lessons I have learnt.
  1. Do not leave 7YO in charge of camera
  2. Do not post on blog after drinking the red grape.
Have a good weekend!


  1. It's lovely when your meals are based around stuff you've grown - don't you find that the tastes are amazing & your tastebuds tingle for hours! How're you getting on with a half-plot? We're struggling and feel half just ain't enough...

  2. Half is not enough to grow everything that I want to grow - but it is more than enough weeds!

  3. glad you got your mojo back...and a camera....and glad you are finally getting to eat some of what you have sown!!!

  4. Looks great, we've started having meals with loads of veg (6 the other night, courgette, squash, broad, runners, french and spuds!). Never seen that on garlic sorry can't help on that one.

  5. Hello
    I'm just blog hopping and found you, lovely blog and lovely boy. My son just said hey what am I doing on that blog!! He doesn't look anything like your boy - but to be fair would stick potatoes in his ears :)

  6. Wow, looks like you had an absolute feast! So satisfying to get such a varied lunch all from your own hard work.
