Morning Tea

Saturday saw me returning to attend Morning Tea with the local Simple Living group. I had some extra carrots, cherry tomatoes from the garden which I brought along to give away. 

On the handmade swap table I brought along some crochet and knitted fancy coathangers, which I can't claim to handmaking but my mum made them so they count as hand made. Annette brought along lovely handmade tags and cards which are going to be great to my Christmas additions and Margy brought along some Rhubarb.

I finished up the warm day cleaning out the vegetable bed, the beans and snap peas are finished, so out went the spent plants My beans ended up with some powdery mildew I know next time to spray them with a bit of baking soda in water. There's a few carrots left and the only thing to grow is onions and chokos. I also cleaned up the cherry tomato vine. My dad came home from his country music day out and ask me why I was cutting off the vine and not stalking it up...oops...I'm such a noobie.
I made a salad with the cherry tomatoes for dinner and fresh homemade bread.

Next year I am hoping my salads will be all home grown! It was a good day out with nice company and later, nice food.


  1. Shiralee, I was sorry to have to miss the morning tea yesterday as I had a school reunion dinner on. Hopefully we will have another one in November before the Christmas break. Those carrots are looking good.

  2. Hi Nanna Chel,
    A school reunion dinner sounds brillant. I hope you had a good time.
    I cooked the carrots up in a dinner for my aunt and she said they tasted great and she was also suprised at the color which was very carroty. They were not pale like shop brought ones are after cooking.
    Hope to see you at one of the November programs.
