12 Days - Day 4

Well, today's priority was the allotment, well no body said they all had to be quilting projects :) 

Over 100 leeks planted - Check!

And booty too!

And a big armful of rhubarb as well, delicious!

The Teenage Diva decided she wanted chocolate this afternoon, unfortunately there is non in the house!  Bad Mother!  lol 

But we did have chocolate chips ...

Mmmmmmmm, delicious!

I got caught up on my Brit Bee Blocks for Judith ...

I hope you like them Judith  :)

And that rhubarb got turned into some Rhubarb and Orange Chutney, now we just have to wait 3 months to see what it's like!

Tomorrow, it will be back to just the Diva and myself, though there is still more to be done down at the allotment, these showers and sunshine are making the weeds very happy ...

and the Diva has an emergency dentist appointment ... ouch!

So I'd like to get more quilting done on Jean's quilt ...

anything else will be a bonus  :)

  2. Day 2 - Piece Kaleidoscope quilt - Check!
  3. Day 3 - piece Sunkissed blocks - Check!
  4. Day 4 - Leeks Planted - Check! 
  5. Day 4 - Brit Bee Blocks - Check!
Happy Quilting!

There's nothing like a carrot pulled fresh from the ground and rinsed under the garden tap. A lovely basket of goodness there. And I love your bee blocks!

Mmmmm that chutney sounds good. I make a lot of tomato chutney, my neighbour brings us baskets full during the summer. Linda x

I love the liberated bee block, but the rhubarb and orange chutney really got me drooling!. I really wish I *occasionally* got the urge to be creative in the kitchen!

Oh your veggies look great! Tell me, can you eat rhubarb the first year you start growing it? I planted mine this spring and it has taken off, but not sure if you're supposed to pick the stalks yet. Jxo
