Today I made more Christmas cakes, I used my new little cake tin from the Hospice (charity) Shop. The cake (left) is so cute – tall and small, but it is also a funny size – so I wound up with leftover batter which I used to make mini-mini Christmas cakes in my mini muffin tins, I think they will be handy for party food.Tomorrow when they are cool and set, I will decorate them.
Then I tottered out to the garden, pulled up the broad (fava) beans that are well and truly finished and planted a row of onions. I weeded and muttered to my stupid knee alot. Small steps. A job is done, a second and a third.
That was enough, any more and I will be in trouble from my surgeon; he still doesn’t know I walked around on it for eighteen hours last week, and I’m not telling. Nor am I being completely stupid – I do actually know when to stop, I just hate sitting down.
Tomorrow is the day I fell the silverbeet trees. Its a shame, last year I let them seed. The self sown seedlings are everywhere so I will have no trouble establishing a new patch. These old ones are in the sunniest spot in the garden and I need that patch for my experimental peanut and an heirloom beefsteak tomato.
