I hope your weekend has got off to a good start.
It was harvest festival day here .. .. .. as in the day Mr Heart decided to dig up all the crops he has been growing. So vegetables are coming out of our ears!
Seeing him digging up the carrots reminded me of this stamp that hasn't seen the light of day for a while

So most of today has been spent in the kitchen.
Courgettes were turned into soup that was frozen ready for adding Stilton Cheese, Seasoning and Cream to when it is time for it to be eaten.
The beetroots have been turned into Beetroot Chutney using an old recipe my late Mum in Law used to use many many years ago. We haven't made it before and I am just keeping my fingers crossed it tastes as good as I remember .. .. .. especially as we have a rather large amount of jars full of the stuff.
Carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers are still in the fridge for future use .. .. and there are lots of tomatoes still ripening.
We have done quite well with our crops this year considering we are only really just getting into it. The only things we failed with were radishes and lettuce which we thought would be super easy to grow!!
Anyway, that is me for today. Good luck with the heart searching .. .. a bit of a tricky one tonight.
