More sunshine and some gardening

The FH has been busy pottering all day, and so I have been doing some gardening - I finally got the seeds in! Three kinds of tomatoes, some peppers, kale, pumpkins, courgettes, leeks, chives and onions, rosemary and plenty of beans - runner beans and dwarf French beans, as well as climbing French beans - we love beans! They are in the greenhouse, and in the mini greenhouse in the verandah. Now I have to do some weeding to keep the beds ready to plant them out when they are ready in a week or three.

The EFG has made whoopie pies today with her friend, and they are mostly eaten! Now that she has made them a couple of times, I have two bowls of the marshmallow filling in the fridge - why she keeps making more I don't know, but I must find something else to use it up on.

We have had fish for supper today, in the Good Friday tradition - the folks had fish pie and I had some Value white fish with home made oven chips.

The YFG has had a very lazy day: she started off helping me in the garden and quickly got fed up with that plan and retreated to the coolness of the lounge - it has been hot again today - and she watched several films - a good Disney version of Moses, and then The Princess Diaries 2. Yesterday wore her out completely, and she has had a day to recover today - she'll be back at it tomorrow.

Tomorrow there's lots on, so I'll pop in now and again to check the blogs. Happy Easter!

Looks like the silver fox (sorry Paul Hollywood)'s 100 great breads book is being re-released at a decent price.

Happy Easter to all the fen family!
