The herbs have moved into my plastic green house. I know there has been very little frost but I dug up my dahlias and out them in pots. They are in there as well. I lost a lot of them last year so I don't want to take any chances.
I was trying to grow potatoes for Christmas, But the foliage was gone so I dug them up and cooked them for dinner.
Hidden under some of the plants I found 1 lovely carnation with a beautiful smell of cloves. I think I am meant to call them pinks now, but they will always be carnations to me.
There is still some more work to do,but it will have to wait until after the brown bin collection as I have no where to put the foliage that has to be cut down and there is a mountain of flower pots to be washed.
To go with the potatoes I had a go at the Sesame-crusted chicken from Rachel Allen's Easy Meals
It is gorgeous. My fussy Son wants to know when I will be making it again.
I had some of the crumb mix left over so I coated some parsnips in it. That was a big hit too.
And now for a bit of showing off, Meringue's From Rachel Allen's Bake. It is the first time I managed to make them without them cracking.
