Lughnasadh a celebration of the first harvest. At every turn of the wheel our family celebrates by having a meal off the land (no bonfire celebration this year as it is pretty dry out there).
The weather has been stunning! Days on end of BLUE sky, no clouds, and gorgeous sunny weather.
We have been watching the corn, hoping it would be ready - not yet.
Fresh potatoes were dug for - I love getting down on my hands and knees having a lucky dip dig for the potatoes First beans were harvest, zucchini which is prolific, first cucumber whoop whoop, carrots, tomatoes (not a great year again for tomatoes) lettuce and herbs.
Everything in the salad was off our land.
I get a huge buzz out of preparing a meal for the family, straight from my garden to the table. - I should say James and my garden.
SQUEAL.... our fabric arrived from USA - took only 8 days highly recommend The Fat Quarter Shop.
Abbey loves Riley Blake designs and purchased the fabric for her next quilt.
My fabric from Jo Morton - the pack Glasgow sparked my next quilt that I'm dreaming to have time to make. As I don't like to follow rules and patterns (Abbey does) I'm planning to incorporate my genealogy hobby into my next quilt. Starting with the Galloway's that came from Glasgow, Scotland to New Zealand.
(Don't yea love Stella photo bombing?) So much for Stella not allowed on beds.... Stella helps herself onto the day bed we have in the lounge. I suppose it's rather hard for a puppy to understand not to just hop up on the bed if Abbey' is not lying on it.
eenie, meenie, miny, moe - what shall Jack choose from the smorgasbord tonight?
