Sunday 14th April 2013 – BBQ and tops off!!

Well what a lovley day. It may have been a little windy, but the sun shone and so out came the BBQ. Mark thought I was a bit mad at trying it, but not wanting to be detered by the weather I ploughed on and we had a lovely dinner. On the BBQ we had sausages, homemade burgers, chicken drumsticks, prawns and corn on the cob. To go with that I did potatoes wedges anad salad. We ate inside though, but soon the weather will be warm enough and so alfresco eating will be on the cards. We only manage 2 or 3 BBQ’s last year which considering the weather was pretty good. I’m determined to have more this year. As the weather has warmed up I decided to take the tops off the seed trays (propagator lids). The seedlings looked a bit apprehensive, but I assured them that they’d be ok. If the nights get cold I’ll recover them. After dinner and watching the rest of Die Hard 2 (George likes those sorts of films. We’ve stopped coughing when Bruce Willis swears. But George knows they’re not words to use and just giggles). I went out into the greenhouse and sowed the following: Pumpkin “Atlantic Giant” I’m determined to grow a large one this year. I’ll let you know how I get on. Salad Leaves “Niche Oriental Mixed”, Calabrese “Belstar” and finally Broccoli “Spring Sprouting Mixture”. Now it’s the middle of April I’ll start to sown all my April seeds, so for the next couple of days I’ll be busy.

    awesome Post Claire we had our dinner outside yesterday we were naughty we brought a bargain bucket in with us after church and it was lovely

    • It doesn’t matter what you have to eat outside, it all counts. When I’d done everything I sat one a chair in the garden, put my feet up and read my Delia Summer Collection book. Perfect way to spend the end of the day.
