- To date, my cucumbers are the most productive plant in my vegetable garden, I have picked about eight this week. These ones were being used in a Thai Cucumber Salad. My chili plant which I cut back last spring is now producing too. Beetroot are the next best, this was the preparation for a raw beetroot salad. Links to these recipes will be in January's Cook the Books post.
- Some hand quilting - almost looks like sashiko, but it's not.
- This beautiful book turned up for me at the library the other day, full of gorgeous horticultural artworks - old and contemporary. There are some very talented horticultural artists in our world. I am also reading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, it is a true crime and travel memoir in one. Really interesting and entertaining so far.
- Bunches of pretty - these Cosmos were salvaged from my garden after a good storm on Saturday night. They never cease to make me smile with their pretty colours.
Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead.
