From Peelings

Hello everyone

We've been having lots of fun recently. The galas have finished and and we've been on holiday (will tell you all about that in another post).

Today I've been tidying up a corner of the garden and I got fed up of seeing the potato plants growing from out of the sides of the compost bin, and they were starting to flower. Out they came with some potatoes. I didn't plant them they just grew from my potato peelings. I guess I peel them too thick.  I'll probably get some more next year from the tiny ones I left behind and the peelings I compost next spring

Looks like these could be King Edwards and a Rooster. Just enough to go with tea tonight.

Since Thursday last week we've had to boil all our drinking water because somehow sheep's poo got into the system and contaminated it. We don't have a dishwasher so had to boil the water for that too. What a pain it's been. Drinking boiled water taste awful and on Friday we tried to get a bottle of water, It was impossible to find one anywhere as all the shops had sold out. We did find some bottles yesterday when we were out in Fleetwood. 29p for a ltr, at Home Bargains, so we got a couple. The water company is hoping that all will be well tomorrow. We shall see.

I need to catch up with you all and find what's been happening around the globe the past two weeks. Not much on telly tonight.

Well that's my ramblings for today. see all again soon.

    1. That's a really good question. I understand it's under investigation. The potatoes were tasty.

  2. I agree about the taste of boiled water .It's needing to use boiled water for dishwashing that I've found to be a pain, particularly on days when I've been baking. Just seen on the news that we still need to boil it. Don't think we'll be getting any money knocked off our bills either to compensate for all the electricity we've used boiling kettles!

    1. Hi Scarlet, so lovely to hear from you. How are you doing?
      I too wash dishes in the sink but I've been boiling pans because I read that boiling the kettle didn't kill the bug as doesn't boil for long enough. A right royal pain. I read on their website that there will be compensation but decisions still have to be made on how.

  3. I keep finding random potatoes in the compost heap as well, it's like finding treasure :) Hope your water issues are sorted soon. A x

    1. It is just like finding treasure.
      Its been 7 days so far that we have had to boil our water and apparently it is getting cleaner every day - so the water company say.

    1. Lucky you. It is a real pain having to boil the water especially for the washing up.
      Spuds tasted great.
