The other packet is this.
Hmm, nice name and tempting description, lets turn the packet over.
Fruits have a fantastic "Japanese style" gourmet flavour....Oooh
Sushi Flavour perhaps, Teriyaki Sauce, Soy Sauce, ooh what about Wasabi. My mind boggles. I will have to grow some to try, I have 10 seeds, would anyone like 5 of them to try? let me know.
There are lots of bright spots in the garden,
I have 3 of these Michaelmas Daisies and love them.
We had a border devoted to them when I was a child.
Behind them were my Grandfathers Dahlias, a source of pride for him every year.
A solitary Gladioli, not my favourite flower although striking. It will join the other odd ones from the garden and go to a neighbours, he had the others that I dug out last autumn.
Quite a lot of pink in there, the rose is scented and has put on a show all summer long.
This little pansy is tucked in among the Flowering Quince branches, I hope that it will flower through the winter.
On Friday evening I take a friend into Pontardawe for a social hour, during the summer I was taking Ben and we walked around the many footpaths exploring. This week it was too dark so after the drop off I went to Tesco for a mooch round in the warm.
Cue, Happy dance.
A set of clothes for the new baby, due in February, all I need to find is a pair of soft boots, all in the sale so even better. They are resting on a quilt from the WIP pile, it will be finished this weekend.
I also found a pack of 2 Avocado for 27p and 2 x 400g packs of leeks for 21p each. The bargain of the day was this root ginger, 700gms for 2p, it was divided into 2 packs and they would not scan correctly so went through at 1p. Woo Hoo
This will be peeled then some diced and some grated and into the freezer. I do use it in many dishes so am very pleased. The 3 small pieces at the front will be in pots and in the greenhouse later, nothing ventured nothing gained.
On the home front there are now 2 hotels close to the restaurant,
Des res mark 1 complete, no 2 almost there. It is now up on the fence. I hope that a plethora of insects will soon be hanging a "No Vacancies" sign up.
That is all for now, things to do.
