Just catching up with myself at the start of the year
Enjoyed baking these today, chocolate orange cupcakes, the boys have been anticipating these for a couple of weeks and I finally found time to make them.
The new year started and cranked up to full speed before I had chance to breathe. I had considered posting my plans for the year and the resolutions I hoped to to achieve but I haven't even planned thought them through yet. My word for the year is try, just because I need to try to do some things a little differently and take opportunities that come along. It is so easy to say no I can't do that. Hopefully this is going to be fun.
I also want to try to blog more but like other years that might not happen any differently.
Today, I decluttered my seed stash and went to seedy Sunday. I did not swap my seeds as I want to keep the sowing plans fairly simple. I was not as resilient to temptation as I thought I could be. I have planned not to grow tomato plants this year from seed, however I have bought some Thomas Etty brandywine black tomato seeds. So easily tempted I am sometimes!
Have any of you tried using these?
I am thinking of growing herbs in them possibly on the garage wall might be nice to be able to step out of the kitchen and grab some herbs to bung in the meals.
Also had my first visit of the year to the plot this weekend a quick but productive burst of time, its good to be back at the plot.
