A frugal card

Thought you might enjoy seeing this card I received from a dear friend who I know now reads my blog. He knew this would amuse me.. a frugal card! I guess he downloaded it and printed it out and it came by snail mail.. what a treat- a letter !! I have determined that I will send it back to him with the thank you boxed ticked. he'll like that.
The next picture is of our brassica patch now that it is covered against the cabbage white butterflies.
And finally here are a couple of pictures I took today of the bacon rolls (yesterday's blog) before and after cooking. I placed the bacon rolls onto some chard stalks and then surrounded them with corgettes and tomatoes. I then dribbled a parsimonious amount of olive oil over the lot and put in the oven for half an hour. While this was cooking I boiled some new lincoln potatoes.. Job  done!

That's all for now folks. Off for a shower as we have been weed clearing on the canal today in readiness for the volunteer group that are coming this weekend to do some restoration work. Big weed pulling is sweaty work!
