Been a bit busy lately so I've been slow updating the blog! We've still been really lucky with the weather - there have been a couple of rainy days and a couple with showers, but generally its been nice and sunny, and mild: there's a nice shot of Inch last week just to prove it! There's still loads growing in the polytunnel and outside as well - tomatos, lettuce, turnips, courgettes, runner and Borlotti beans, chard, kale, pumpkins, and even grapes.
What has been a bit unusual is that there hasn't been much wind over the last few weeks: normally you'd expect gales around this time of year, and apart from a few days with southerlies ( not the greatest direction around here ) and one day where it was absolutely crazy, we've hardly had a thing, and I haven't windsurfed for a good while. BUT, the surfing has been good, although Rachel and Caitlin only caught Phil and I on camera on our way up the beach at Stradbally after our last session, so no actions shots.
The most important thing is that it was our eleventh wedding anniversary on Monday - this is apparently denoted by steel, so I bought Rachel a pasta machine ( romantic huh? ) and we had great fun making tagliatelle, with Caitlins help of course.
i took the rainbow picture on our way back from Dingle, and I'm still looking for that pot of gold....
