I'm doing quite well with my plants, they are still alive and in this hot weather too so I went out and bought a new one. Me and Mum from the Brew popped along to the local garden centre and have a look at what was on offer.
I purchased a new kettle a while ago didn't I? Yes I did as I wrote a post about it, come on catch up!! I just couldn't throw my old kettle away so I thought I would put it to some use in the garden, with a plant in it. I thought a herby plant would be nice, something trailing that would look good flowing out of the kettle. Mum from the Brew said 'have you got some Thyme?' I said 'it's 11.15 Mum' ........I know, it's an oldie but a goody. I didn't have any Thyme actually so I went for it and as they were the bargain price of £2.50 I had two. Mum from the Brew bought three!! She has way too much Thyme on her hands.......ok I'll stop now.
So now my Lemon Thyme is sitting in my old kettle and smelling so fragrant, yes I've given it some water and I hope it will survive.....I'm feeling more optimistic. I seem to have this plant thing sorted now.
I also decided as I was turning into a great gardener I would have a go at growing some potatoes. I can't go wrong with them, I have grown some before and it was easy peasy. I bought some potato bags, a bag of compost, got some proper advice from an expert at the garden centre and they are now in the garden. Yes I've watered those too.....never looked forward to my Christmas dinner so much - home grown potatoes with fresh herbs....yummy!!
So an inexpensive What to Buy Wednesday this week.....that's what we like and fresh produce growing in my garden, might get my greenhouse cleaned out in time for winter ha ha.
Thank you for reading today, go on come back tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday, you know you want to. For now though take care and keep cool in this hot weather my little brewsters.
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
