Added to the haul were some of our eggs (and a few sausages for Lovely Hubby, my carnivore caveman).......yummy!!
Then I stopped to think, I am truly getting carried away with this photographing everything lark.....
The only way I can have pretty flowers is to put them in a pot sitting in the top of my old chimney. Dad was laughing as I added plant after plant to my trolley in the garden centre, but I managed to fit all but one in and it looks lovely, for now anyway, it might get a bit crowded looking when the Poached Egg Plants are a bit bigger. I just hope the Welsummers don't see them (they have been known to jump and peck.......little b*****s that they are!

More Broccoli in the small bed, interplanted with Radishes.
Another Kitchen Garden bed full of promise.
Today I am going to plant out some peas after making twiggy supports from them, I really quite enjoy this making use of what lies around the farm, and all the branches from the trees LH has been 'trimming' (I call it butchering...but there you go!) are coming in very useful. I'll have to move fast to cover them up though, as chickens LOVE pea shoots!
This lovely bird feeder and the bird bath at the top of this post are just two of the things I have been spending my birthday money on.
Now it's back to planting for me, after the lovely cooling and thirst quenching (for the soil) rain yesterday the soil is lovely and soft again and I am taking the opportunity to plant out a lot of the seedlings from the polytunnel. This morning I am concentrating on my Broccoli seedlings and then later I am hoping to fill my little square 16 section bed with a selection of plants from the polytunnel.
Back with some pictures tomorrow.

Now they are big girls of eight weeks old, and this is them this morning.
Already friendly, they came running over when they saw me. They let me stroke them and tickle them behind their ears. They watched in amazement while I filled the trough with water from the hose and tried to drink the water while it was still frothy with bubbles.
