Meal Plan Friday 22nd September 2017

I am not sure where this week has gone. It has been dominated by Type 1, we are having to change all the insulin levels as our eldest has been having hypos every night. Thank goodness we have a dexcom that alerts us to these. We are shattered from the broken sleep and constant worry. 

The meals other than Sunday are pretty budget friendly as we are a watching the pennies and as you can see we are having a lot of veggie meals which we love.

Friday - Sausages with caramelised onions served in brioche buns with coleslaw. The boys have school meals on Friday so will have picnic dinner.

Saturday - Chicken Kiev (shop brought) roasted new potatoes and a huge green salad. The boys will have pizza (not homemade)

Sunday - Slow cooked topside of beef with roast potatoes, Carrots, greens, yorkshires and lots of gravy

Monday - Bhaji Frittata

Tuesday - Lentil Ragu with garlic bread

Wednesday - Jackets with Tuna or beans and cheese

Thursday - Beef Cannelloni

Pruning a Standard Rose by a total gardening novice

The weather has suddenly started to feel like winter. Today was cold but at least it was sunny, much easier to wrap up warm and get outside. My problem is my toes, they do hate the cold and despite two pairs of socks I still only managed around half an hour.

Today was the day I pruned (it felt more like attacked) the standard rose, we brought this about two years ago. Mr MC&W fell for bits big pink flowers and it came home with us. Then it was a lovely compact rose full of beautiful flowers.

Last year I did not prune it and to be honest it looked a mess, the branches had grown long and were trailing. When it was windy the whole plant nearly fell over.





This year I was determined to do something about it, I did a few google searches and I watched an excellent video from the Garden Ninja on YouTube. He made it all sound very simple so off I went with my secateurs and enthusiasm.

All I had in my mind was cut to outward facing buds and remove dead wood. So I looked carefully and chopped do…

Hanging Baskets and Containers 2020

Buying the plants for the hanging baskets was a little different this year. Normally it would be a trip to the garden centre, involving lots of picking plants up and putting them together to see what looks good. This year for lockdown I was lucky that our nursery had put together an excellent online shop. But I had to buy in packs of six rather than individual plants. This meant I had to think about how the plants could be used in two places.
My main three hanging baskets are all petunias, I have to be honest with you, I love a petunia they are bright and bold and simply make me happy. I would normally go for clashing colours but I decided it would be better as I had to buy them in packs of six to have them as one block colour. 
They are Petunia Hot Pink, Purple and Fanfare Red.


For the three tire planter I have gone for petunias again, I am hoping they may trail down a little. Two are Petunia Shockwave Denim and Deep Purple and Petunia Frenzy Pink
