I am feeling incredibly guilty posting a pic of fried bacon and eggs. I didn’t cook them though and I did ask Mr B for poached eggs, he just opted to (gulp) fry them. The good news is fried or not they tasted amazing with tapenade spread liberally over the whole grain toast and a good drizzling of homemade chilli sauce.
This fine specimen which by the way was ginormous just so happened to be a double yolker too.
Must say I felt rather sorry for the chook that had the joy of laying it. And speaking of those lovely feathered friends of mine, we are getting at least 3 – 4 eggs daily, which is something to do with spring fast approaching and the daylight hours lengthening. Yay!
Mid week I splashed seaweed fertiliser over my vege garden, which by the way is looking great. Lots of peas, good growth on the garlic and onions and we’re still eating broccoli (juicing the leaves now too!). I planted more spring onions in a pot this week which just so happens to be near the back door.
At last, I have been particularly good and gone through my seed store removing seed that is well and truly past its best. These will end up in the compost and who knows … I suspect some of them will no doubt germinate. I do need to buy some wild flower seed and will also poke my nose into Kings catalogue to see what interesting heirloom vege they have on hand.
I’m still gloating that my planting plan is done and dusted .. and with a bit of luck by the end of the month I’ll start sowing some seeds in trays.
Happy gardening ..
