Having got free tickets for the cinema, we had a lovely trip into town yesterday, which is how we came across the following:
The latest addition to Leeds transformation, this isn’t real grass and is presumably only here for the duration. At least people are out enjoying the sunshine.
Anyway, later in the day, determined to finish making a pair of pyjamas for my daughter, I ended up stripping down the sewing machine to get it working again. So, that was the rest of the day gone.
However, the pumpkin didn’t care. I think there might actually be two on the vine, so I hope the plant is strong enough for both. These are the scrummiest pumpkins I’ve eaten so far, so I planted four vines. Unfortunately, three of them got smothered by mangetout peas and parched almost to death. Hopefully, now they will make a comeback but I’m so happy with what has appeared while I’ve been pre-occupied elsewhere.
