In the afternoon I finally got to work in the garden. Weeding. Forget everything I said in This Post when I was singing the praises of nettles. When they are strangling my peas and beans they become the enemy! Common all garden 'Stingers'. Not a nice job weeding them out of the one raised bed they are determined to take over. I donned gloves and had nasty thoughts. I was rewarded for my nasty thoughts by pulling a large nettle and it flew out of the ground into my face, stinging me on the end of my nose and my cheek! Youch! War on all nettles from now on!!! I thought there was nothing to harvest from the garden yet but I had some accidental finds. I pulled a whole pea plant by mistake, that was disappointing. I found the first 'runner' beans and some nice round courgettes. Oh I nearly forgot I pulled this little potato by accident too. Oh yes...we have rich pickings here. The fruits of my labour. High living indeed.
I am trying hard to be less wasteful with food. I have a nice little stash of eggs so I decided to make a famous Weight Watcher's Crustless Quiche (or two). Pre Weight Watchers a Quiche had a nice crisp, buttery, pastry crust, now I am destined to be eating quiche of the 'crustless' variety for the forseable. (Tut, 'crustless' I ask ya)!
