Dear Family & Friends
The onions are harvested...it's still sitting out there to dry a bit more. No, I'm not braiding onions this year...I decided to store them in the house and most of it would be prepared to be frozen or dried.
They are smaller this year...but it's OK...the harvest was about 2 box tray full, for 30 pence worth of onion set that I bought to plant way back in spring time....definitely a good deal:)

|weeds + cardboard+water= compost in no time!

I'm starting to think ahead...working for two identical crochet winter lap blankets for my two girls. Yes, I'm also tidying up bits and pieces of yarns...so this is going to be a very colourful and appealing blankets:)
|the design is made up depending on yarn availability...work still in progress
At the same time, out in the garden I find more spaces to put in plants...so I decided to plant in more basil...not from seed...it's faster if you just cut some stems from your existing plant and root it in water...they root fast and then it can be planted straight away once rooted:)
|basil cuttings rooting in water...they'll perk up soon
OK, this root cutting looks dead...but it will forgive me by tomorrow...it's just so hot today...but really our summer this year is not as hot as it was last year.
Hope you have a nice day:)
