Potatoes

These are some of the spuds we got from the garden this year. This particular batch came out of one straw bale which Matt used as an edge to the main garden. He dug two little holes in the top of each bale and planted a seed potato in each hole with a couple of handfuls of soil, watered a couple of times and left them to their own devices. So this lot is from just two seed potatoes.

I think you could say this is a success :)

What glorious looking spuds. I'm sure they will be delicious as freshly dug spuds are sooooo good.

You know, I have exactly the same knives as the two in your photo in my cutlery drawer. They belonged to Mum's parents. I also have Mum's mother's stainless steel mixing bowls which I use every day (but no matter how much I try my baking is never as good as Nana's was).

Just proves that well made kitchen utensils last more than a liftime!

Sending care and huggles to your dear self and to your 3 great blokes, with tickles under the chin added for Skilly,
