Flies And I Mean Flies
In the shed today there was a plague of flies, the above photo shows what was left after I had zapped them with fly killer, the windows were covered with them, my initial thought was something had crawled in there and died, I emptied the shed shifted the units checked every bag, pot and bucket, nothing to be found, I have no idea what was the reason behind the fly swarm.
Picked another load of runner beans, they are coming to an end there is no more flowers, there is a last picking still on there left them to grow a bit more.
I managed to get a photo of the stags displaying, all puffed up and doing a dance, they make a kind of huffing boom noise when they are doing it.
Soup on the menu today, I had some dried pulses so into the pot with loads of veg
I used some of the small squashes, carrot swede, potatoes, courgette and onion all cooked up with some herbs and stock,
All blitzed up to make a lovely thick soup, there is plenty for Martin to take back with him and some to go in the freezer.
Tomorrow I am planning a day of cooking, I have defrosted a chicken and joint of pork. I need to get some bread done as well.
Sol is a lot better, we both had a good nights sleep, he had his post op check today all is OK. His stitches come out in 10 days.
We are still having lovely weather, Sol and me had a lovely dusk walk down in the forest, we were a bit late for our walk I was caught up on the phone. The sunsets and sunrises have been beautiful, we still haven't had a frost but no doubt we will get one soon.
I hope you are all enjoying this Indian Summer :-)
