I’m feeling all “homes and gardens”

June 5, 2010

The rest of the family have gone to Old Trafford for a day at the Test Match, and I have, in a good and frugal way, sent them off with a picnic.  However I am feeling quite proud (or at least moderately competent) that it includes sandwiches containing home grown salad leaves and chives, home-made chocolate and hazelnut cupcakes (thank you Hummingbird Bakery cookbook), and (piece de resistance) a flask of iced home-made lemonade.

I’m off out now to do some planting in our beautiful new vegetable patch. It’s getting a bit late in the year to hope for too much from seeds, so we’ve bought a few plants from the garden centre too.
