Cloudy again and cool but sunny bits. I' off to a local vide grenier to see if there are any goodies I can upcyclye then a spot of sewing and the sowing I didn't get to yesterday. Read on A4A that some broad beans can be sown now for a harvest in November so decided I may as well try tho my varieties are wrong. Nothing ventured and all that.
Beef for dinner here too but I do find it is the most boring meat going, even when well brought up so this slump has been smeared with Dijon mustard and rubbed with freshly ground spices and sat in the fridge for 2 days.
No probs with doggy appetite or digestion but they're young yet. Will keep slippery elm in mind tho as it sounds good. Thanks.
Congrats Hosta and hub. That pergola looks inviting too. The gite we used to stay in put fairy lights round there patio seating area - solar powered modules.
Enjoy your family day Busy. Christening sounds good. Can't find the garden visits thread. Have you posted pics of Giverny yet or been too busy?
My knitting "skills" have been dormant since I was taught at primary school eons ago tho I did knit a few scarves over the last couple of winters using fancy stitches gleaned form the net. Might have to attempt a jumper next. Certainly don't need woolly hats here. There are limits to how much embroidery I can do. Bloody OH and Possum think the current project looks old fashioned! It's just a cover for a chest of drawers and has a pattern of daisies and foliage. How does something like that get "modern"?
