Eating at the allotment and Julia selling her artwork
Well, as summer gradually fades, Julia and I are making the most of being at the allotment. Thanks to Julia and her fine planning we are having tea up there as much as possible. That involves using the stove to cook fresh produce just picked from the patch. It really tastes supurb and is the definitive relaxing and satisfying time spent in the range of own grown food. The position of the paddock makes sure the sun is on the vegetables and shed for as long as possible. This makes picking them and cooking them easier with plenty of time. Cups of tea help the pick and cooking and then eventual eating!
Cabbage uncovered so Julia can check on their progress
With it being the last bank holiday of 2015 we started it with some top news. Julia received a letter from Harrogate council saying her exhibit that was chosen in the Mercer Gallery open exhibition 2015 had been sold. Whoever bought it purchased a superb piece of work. The time that goes into them is worth much more than the asking price and I am sure they will treasure the piece. Absinthe evening tonight with some Dr Who later, maybe David Tennant era? Hopefully back up to the paddock tomorrow. I have been painting a bench we took up last week. International paint is quite hardwearing and once complete it has a great view of Nidderdale.
