I'm actually writing this Thursday evening as I have time, so there will be no comments about weather, sleeping well, etc.
It has been a lovely day. I've had kisses, cuddles, happy and smiley faces and an invite to dinner (although I suspect mum had no idea). What more could a dedicated teacher want? Retirement??? No way!
If you remember, not that long ago I was whinging about lack of copious anounts of ripe tomatoes. Can't complain any more. Today I brought in an armful of tomatoes this morning and another armful this evening.
OK, so I have large plum tomatoes (so scrummy) and quite a lot of beef tomatoes (somewhat on the large side) so an armful is comparatively easy to achieve but, with the weekend coming up, I have a very large bowlful overflowing and will be making more tomato soup (wonderful stuff) and more passata/chopped tomatoes for the freezer. So, as I said, no complaints.
For the first time in absolutely ages, I had to buy some bread. Oh, the shame. So, as well as tomato production, I intend to make several loaves for the freezer.
Then I will be picking shedloads of runners and preparing them for freezing.
September is a good month, I have decided.
