Hubby dragged me down the plot today.
Because I've been a bit of a coward.
The thing is.... you know that hysterectomy surgery, well I believed them, you know the part where they say... 'and you can now lead a normal life' after twelve weeks. Well I tried, I did, and it did not work at all well for me. I would work for an hour, no more, and then I suffered for a week. Even now, for some reason the right hand side of my scar deep inside pulls really badly,, that it hurts.
I am a great believer in that time heals, I'm also a believer that scary situations should be avoided..
Which is why I needed a hubby to drag me back down the plot. (you have to remember that everytime I have gone to the plot, it has resulted in pain)
Today, was different, there are lots of light jobs I can do.
Firstly there was photography,
cucumbers the first we have ever successfully grown.
globe artichokes, such architectural plants.
courgettes are doing well.
as are the parsnips
carrots on the other hand have done very badly, although..
the carrots in the new experiment which might be protected from carrot fly are doing very nicely.
the raspberries, well, Wow,
haven't they done well.
I only picked just over a row, I have work to do tomorrow.
There were peas that I picked. And potatoes that hubby harvested,... Kestrel, which looked wonderful. Potato blight has come in, so hubby has pulled all the tops off to leave the potatoes safely in the ground.
There were many little gem lettuces that are ripe and just about to bolt, they will make a lovely braised vegetable dish, with a little onion, a little chicken stock and a dash of cream..
Our harvest for today.
In a Vase on Monday - Pressed into Service - Another idiom helped me decide the theme for this week's In a Vase on Monday. I thought of my little pressed glass jugs. I would press them into service...
