The problem this year is finding the darn things amongst the leaves and next years new growth which is really lush.
Before the kitchen got too hot I made 4 pastry cases to go in the freezer and a batch of peanut biscuits.
|Pastry cases made for taste - not for their good looks!|
Meanwhile Him Outside has been turning the hay at Saxmundham, checking the irrigation system for our farmer friend ( and one of these days I'll explain why our farmer friend W has to be away working some where else so that he has to pay Him Outside to move the irrigation system on his own land), rowing up the hay behind the second home just up the road, Moving the irrigation system when it was time, baling the hay and then driving around the field with a trailer so the person who is buying it ( and his family) could load it. Then bringing some back here and some to another barn for storage. Then he had just had half an hour sit down tonight when the phone rang with a message to say that someone had noticed that the irrigation has stopped so off he has gone again to see why. They are irrigating onions at the moment on the light sandy soils down the road. I wish we had enough water to irrigate our onions, they really need it but our water has to be saved for the polytunnels.
