And here they are, the grand-children. Bertie and Florence.
I took these photo's on Thursday and it was very difficult getting Bertie to sit with his sister.
We are back now and worked on the plot this afternoon. I weeded the onion , sweetcorn and the cabbage/kale beds. We raised the netting on the cabbages as the pigeons are getting clever at sitting on the netting and stretching it so it dips and then they can peck away at my goodies.
We came home from the lottie with a bag of dark green Italian Kale, short curly Kale, a few broad beans ( I couldn't wait any longer!) and a big parsnip. They were all delicious I steamed the Kale & beans and roasted the parsnip and we had it with roast chicken and roast potatoes, Mmmmm ! plus a lovely bunch of sweet-peas and sweet willliam, they smelt and looked beautiful.
A quick snap before Bertie demanded to be let loose.
