Hello. Hasn't it been glorious today. The weather forecasters got it wrong, no snow here. Only five of us at the Crafty Club this morning. Twas quite pleasant, I actually got to join in some of the conversations. I don't get a look in when a dozen people are all yacking ten to the dozen, with three or four smaller conversations are going on at the same time, ha ha.
I am playing around with the small Kenwood processor, it's very handy to be able to chop up small portions. Yesterday I did some vegetables, it only takes a few seconds to turn them into crumbs. My idea was to cut down on the cooking time by softening them in this microwaveable steamer and eat them. I gave them three minutes, but the taste was a bit bland, so I ended up transferring it to a saucepan with the water, adding a few spices, bringing it to the boil for a couple of minutes, and eating it as soup. It was very nice. Chopping things up small is a good way of saving on the gas as it cooks a lot quicker.
What am I doing here? Why am I scrubbing old plastic compost bags? Cleaning them with rain water I may add. These are all opened out for use in covering the raised beds in the winter. The beds are being opened up now so they are not needed for that job any more. But they might come in useful for something else.
It's going in this corner which is behind the garage, when I have gathered enough materials. Beyond that green mesh is the neighbours garden which is a bit of a mess. A bit like mine, ha ha. He said he is going to put a fence up between us but I don't know when that will happen. Perhaps he is fed up of looking at my mess.
