Naughty! put in a saucepan and make stock.

However. At the end of the allotment session, contemplating what I have done and what needs doing tomorrow. Over a glass of wine that is. :-)

Hmm this is a tricky one, gardening itís got to be sowing seeds, such promise of wonderful things to come. Otherwise it might be making jams & chutneys & filling my larder cupboard with them & feeling very smug when I look at them  :D

Mine definitely picking veg. eating warm peas straight from the plant

Cutting off the winter squash and lining my prizes up on the window sill :)

Making jam also but I have to be in the zone for it as itís time consuming

Making currant gin or rum

Mine is research with problem-solving. Doesn't matter what it's about, I just love going it!

Working with food any way and seeing the smilies on people faces is the best work in my opinion!  :D

 ;)

Least favourite job becomes my favourite after it's done - 100' garden with privet hedges to both sides, the far end, and also in the smaller front garden.
I hate the prospect of dragging my aching bones out to tackle it, but it does look so much better afterwards, and I have the added bonus of not having to attempt a limbo dance to walk up the garden (someone laid the 18" paving slab paths too close to the hedges - not me!  :tongue2:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

I've enjoyed washing and putting all the pots away when the crops are planted out - like beans, courgettes, toms etc, there's so much room in the GH, and you realise that all the hardest jobs are finished, and it's hoeing, weeding, watering, mowing etc to come...

I love checking my tomatoes in the greenhouse,  tying them further up the cane as they're growing and picking off the side shoots.
Can be in my greenhouse for ages as lose track of time  ;)

Getting all those pots away is very satisfying better still if itís still in the same season lol mine is usually in tge spring just before I need them  :ohmy:

Mine are usually filthy, Snows, but this year, I had a spare half-hour, filled the wheelbarrow with water, rinsed the lot, then used the dirty slop on the broad beans...

They loved it!
