I have had so many peaches today !!!!!
I started the day with a large smoothie made with peaches, nectarines and frozen banana. The fruit was all very ripe which really improves the flavour and this was delicious. I played tennis this morning and Christine got me running around a lot to help with the fitness and weight loss which was good. Unfortunately I popped to the shops and was hungry and ate a pecan slice which was very yummy but not what I should be eating at all 😰
I did eat a huge and plant based meal mid afternoon which was very tasty. I used lettuce, spinach and radishes from the garden and Adrian, my fab gardener, brought me one of his cucumbers.
I used the leaves as a base and added tomatoes, roasted onions, carrots, peppers and new potatoes. No dressing needed, just a little s&p. We both had the same meal for breakfast and lunch; Harvey is doing really well with eating a lot of plants.
Harvey was at a rehearsal in the evening so I made him a packed supper of a roll with hummus and roasted veggies plus fruit, water and 2 items of his choosing which were a bag of crisps and a bag of maltesers. We compromise.
I munched on an apple in the afternoon and drank plenty of water.
The greenhouse is always kept neat and tidy and I love it. I have 3 types of tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines. There are also some cauliflowers waiting for a space in the raised beds.
The first tomato is ripe 👏👍🍅 Courgettes.
Raspberries and blueberries. Rocket, mizuna, celery and a winter squash.
The celery looks ready to eat now.The bean bed is a bit chaotic – mange tout, broad, green and purple beans and spinach.
Sweet corn, a trying to flower and seed Swiss chard and more tomatoes. The same bed from a different angle.
Oregano, thyme, radishes, garlic and spring onions. Lettuces.
I have little gems and crinkly ones. The butterheads are my favourite.
Last but not least the brassica bed: rutabaga, cavolo Nero, purple sprouting broccoli and 2 types of kale. Hopefully a vegetable garden for all seasons.
After my huge mid afternoon feast I was not hungry enough for supper so I picked some of the largest lettuce leaves and some spinach and made them in to a long smoothie with 4 peaches and about 400ml of coconut water. Not bad!
Have a great weekend.
