The priority this week was to clear the beds that had become choked with weed, after the invasion on the cabbage. That has now been done along with sorting out the hanging baskets and pots that hold annuals.
My second task was to harvest the herb garden, preparing the pots for overwintering and storing the herbs.
There was a wonderful bounty of Rosemary, that is now hanging on the back door, drying. The wonderful aroma is hard to beat.
Number three brings me to a wonderful couple of hours baking, the simple pleasures in life.
Staying in the kitchen number four brings me to the kitchen cupboards they have all been emptied and cleaned. I now have a clear idea of what is in the store cupboard. Cereal containers have now replaced the boxes and a whole collection of plastic containers has been brought to stop all the spills in the cupboard. I got some Jane Asher containers from Poundland which are both cost effective and useful. I am ashamed to say there were several tins that were out of date that I have now thrown away, such a waste. Rotation certainly seems to be an issue or maybe its over buying in the first place. I avoid the deals that lure me in these days and stick to the shopping list it does save on the wastage.
Finally, number five is the change of seasons and whilst the past couple of days have brought a warmth that the summer really didn't give. Autumn is here and with it the changing colours of the foliage and the dormant hedgerows. Slowly the Autumn décor is being introduced, a hint of what it to come...
I am joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly exchange of Five on Friday, why not pop over and enjoy the fun. I will catch up with everyone later, when I have finished making beds up and do another baking session in preparation for Amie and her little family who are visiting for the weekend.
See you soon.
