I see the moon and the moon sees me.

I see the moon and the moon sees me.

Just taken this photo of the moonlight on the pond, not raining or blowing a gale at present. The day has been very rough with squally showers, torrential rain and earlier this evening it felt like winter. Between the showers this morning took more photos of the bed across the south side of the house, pleased with the way it's developed in such a short time although I will make some changes to plant locations. Picked more peas gone to the freezer and french beans hadn't realised that there were a number that would have been usable last week, they were hiding underneath the leaves, most went to the freezer after being blanched but some used for dinner this evening beats buying them in the supermarket- so so fresh. New potatoes from the kitchen garden are nearly finished but have some that I planted earlier in another bed, these didn't get blight so keeping my fingers crossed that they'll all be good. Will need to thin out carrots sown earlier and am sorry I hadn't sown more earlier as the early ones are coming to an end. Again they are so different just pulled before use really sweet.

Will not get time in the garden to morrow so hoping Sunday will be good and if things go to plan we will have hens to morrow but definitely before Tuesday.

Good picture ! Good to get the reflection on the pond! I have only had limited success trying to get it reflecting on the bay. You make me envious of all your lovely home grown veg - nothing quite like them,is there? Enjoy!
