Lost the Plot

As predicted this blog has taken a turn and will no longer be much of an allotment blog, as I no longer have an allotment. However, I'll first take you through the final stages of the plot, before I received the final passive aggressive email from the council about the state of my plot, where… Continue reading Lost the Plot

One Pot Pasta.. ish.

Pasta an ode to thee. One pot lemon past for 2-3 people ish.. 2 people and 2 average leftovers. Now watch as I turn the worlds simplest dishes into a spectacle of labyrinthian proportions. 1 largish pot Linguine (or whatever kind of pasta you like, I like linguine and this is my blog). I break mine… Continue reading One Pot Pasta.. ish.

Suck it and see

Courgettes and lettuce

So I'm not much of a planner. I didn't or haven't planned what to grow, I just found things I liked and started putting them in pots. I like Jasmin and Ivy, so that went in the ground immediately. I want it all over the shed. I've got courgettes, mint, sage, rosemary, tomatoes, potatoes and… Continue reading Suck it and see

I love you Mac and cheese

I like pepper and spice and heat and warmth. I also like cheese. But above all of those things, I like pasta. I would eat it every day if I could. I could, but I don't. Not for some "pasta is a carb and carbs are bad" nonsense. But for fear of losing the love if I… Continue reading I love you Mac and cheese

Can you ever just be whelmed?

Wild grass weed

Okay, without being too dramatic, this is the hardest thing I've ever done and I'm slowly dying inside. I want to give up and no one understand my pain. There I said it. Whilst that is a minute exaggeration, I am bored of rocks, sick of sifting rocks, sick of goddamn clay sand rubble, sick… Continue reading Can you ever just be whelmed?

How to get a Shed in Gardening

Print by Erik Marinovich

If you think I'm going to stop with the shed puns then you've clearly mistaken me for someone with a lot less time on their hands. Because the digging and the sifting and the digging was wearing me out, I decided to start making the shed more hospitable. So the shed went up on a… Continue reading How to get a Shed in Gardening

Daily Face Maintainence

that beauty maintenance

After probably a good solid 15 years of stealing products from my mum, going in to shops and getting them to give me free samples and makeovers, and reading all the articles about beauty on the internet (all. of. them).. I think I have finally mastered my most basic list of items that I couldn't… Continue reading Daily Face Maintainence

Vegetarian Sausage and Egg Muffins

Sausage and Egg Muffin

Hey yo. It's me. When I'm not complaining about sifting rocks at the allotment, I'm trying to eat as much vegetarian junk food (that also doesn't contain palm oil) as I can. You'll need eggs, English muffins, Quorn "sausage" patties (freezer dept), American cheese singles (if you want hardcore McDonalds, just some Montgomery Jack slices… Continue reading Vegetarian Sausage and Egg Muffins

Floral Combat

grass field

Those weeds. If only anything else would grow as much as weeds. Soil, peas, peonies, Estée Lauder Revitalising Supreme cream .. Anything. When I'm not breaking my back, rock sifting in to the bowels of hell. I'm weeding. Good job weeding is borderline therapeutic. But I suppose If I wasn't in the "I don't completely loathe weeding" camp,… Continue reading Floral Combat
