About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Eat your veggies...

OK, so I know its not a card, again....but I wanted to showcase some of Mark's produce. He is so proud of how everything is growing.

As you can see his mini greenhouse has been taken over by 2 tomato plants.

To the left is just some of the strawberry plants.

Below is the scene in front of our kitchen window which has herbs, salad bowl (a quick growing lettuce), mint and some recently planted broad beans.

Here we have a close-up of his courgette plant. The courgettes aren't that big yet, its the illusion of the camera.
Finally, the main veggie plot containing broad beans, french beans, sweetcorn and brussels.
Also some rhubarb (not visible).
He is also growing more of the same plus pototoes and a sweet pepper.

Off now to have a go at scheduling a blog post for the morning featuring his 2 planters which grace my front doorstep, wish me luck, lol, x
