Last day of September…

Not bad considering none of my own seeds made it….thanks to the kindness of another allotmenteer we have pumpkins this year…

The ones we have harvested are already drying out in the warmth of the shed…..

The tidying up of the raised beds is well underway…garlic going in this weekends…going to try green manure seeds this year…mustard seeds if I can get hold of them over the weekend….the last of the cucumbers growing inside…only one plant left…

When life gives you green tomatoes…

make chutney…of course…..my first time and something tells me it won’t be the last time…..I’m so impressed with the simplicity of the whole recipe and the process too…

Harvest Wednesday…

not the traditional harvest and show day in blogland but who cares….life is happening quite fast over here with home schooling killing me and little one not cooperating much  in full swing and other mundane things….but it’s all good…nobody is complaining….

Do you see those colourful peppers? I’m so chaffed with them….I’ve been getting plenty of green ones but when it comes to read or yellow not so many….when I let them on the plant to colour they go off….so happy with them…

I’m going to try making green tomatoes chutney….the ones outside are not going to turn red anytime soon and we are running out of time ….green tomato chutney it is folks…waste not want not and all that….

and now back to the story of 6….or a poem or two….hard to tell with the little one…thanks god for the independent 15 year old homeschooler….

I heart tapestry crochet…

and I love the fact that I was able to work out the pattern by myself…inspiration from here.….not sure what is going to be….a large cushion….a blanket….hanging decoration? …we shall see….

I’m dead tired from all the Eid celebration partying yesterday and soon a couple of friends are coming to help me finish off all the cakes but still I find time to crochet……I need crochet in my life…when I’m tired…when I’m stressed….when I’m fed up….

I leave you with some Eid related pics…..
