Micro Harvest Festival

Yep, we got pumpkins.  Got so many of them we have one each to carve, two each to eat, and another three on the way, the kitchen looks like a micro harvest festival.  Thankfully my lovely friend Kathy Swan gave me the River Cottage Veg Everyday recipe book for my Birthday so I can't wait to tackle some of the dishes. 

The last of the sunflowers we grew for our wedding have flowered and gone to seed, we had one large trug full of seeds, many went to friends and family and the rest have been feeding the birds.  I'm all about getting animals to our allotment that eat slugs and snails, as much as I don't like frogs I don't like slugs more so was happy when Laura (who we share a plot with) lifted the rhubarb and discovered Brian:

Cue Marsha from Spaced style "Hello Brian" every time he ventures out.

  1. I have pumpkin envy. Not so keen on the frog though.
