Madness

Yes, madness is what seems to have descended on our life's at the mo, the wedding is now less than 3 weeks away (panic!!!) so posts will probably be non-exsistant till after we come back from the Honeymoon.

So for the time being a very quick (and I do mean quick, I've got a seating plan to sort out here!) update on whats been happening here in between me tearing my hair out.



Has anyone else noticed how early everything is this year? We have picked and eaten the few cooking apples our tree managed to squeeze out, not to mention the Blackberries! aren't they about a month ahead of themselves? The locals don't seemed to have cottoned on to this yet, but lucky I noticed the berries on the way home from work, so managed to nip home and get a pot to collect them in.



I had more than this but a generous helping went into the Blackberry and Apple crumble I made, the rest will go in the freezer as I don't have time for much else right now!

Down on the veg patch, the onions are out and we got some cabbage plugs from the boot sale at the weekend to keep the beds full and productive (always something I struggle with going into winter)



Fingers crossed the slugs leave us a few! The rest of garden so looking good despite the fact its been left to it's own devices of late.



And lastly, I would like to say a huge thank you to Stephen and Serena at Victoriana Nursery, who have given us our first wedding present (and very kindly supplied us with Cottage Garden seeds as wedding favors!)



Now I have no excuse not to give jam making a try! Lets hope theres enough fruit stored in the freezer to make some!

What lovely people to give you such great gifts!

I remember doing the seating plan well...everyone stayed in place for about 5 minutes then starting rushing all over the hall to sit next to people they hadn't seen for years! Lol! I felt like jumping up and yelling "Oi! Do you know how long that took me to do you rotten swines!"

I thought my wild blackberries were out early this year, but when I checked back on my blog, they were out last year at the same time.
