Weekly Weigh In 24 & 25

I'm afraid this is a two week combined post as life just got in the way of blogging.

I am spending as much time as possible in the garden , weeding and sorting spaces ready for next year.

I have also made my first bact of Elderflower Cordial and will be getting another underway today.

So anyways the landfill bags weighed in at

weeks 24 192g

week 25 161g

As the weather improves I can only hope that there will be less going into the bin as alot of our meals will be based around the salad and veggies from the garden.

All the salad levaes are now from out of our garden.

The cucumbers are coming along very nicely and all the indoor tomatoes have flowers on; so it won't be long before we are having homegrown of those as well.

Weekly Weigh In 23

The landfill bag this week has crept back up but is still just under my target weight so it came to 192g.

The main thing seemed to be the outer bags from a couple of multipacks of crisps.

Add to that some chicken bones, and there we have it.

Faith has been restored that some companies do listen.

I had signed up to not receive the Yellow Pages, these have been delivered today; I heard the thud on the doormat and thought typical!!

However the delivery lady came back 5 minutes later, knocked and apologised for delivering it, her driver hadn't informed her before she delivered said tomb that I didn't require one.

This does though leave one ? what would hace happened if I had already departed for the day and she couldn't retrieve it?

Veggies & Salad - update

We harvested the first of our home grown leaves yesterday, there was a good mixture of different types of salad leaf from the digin seeds I received this year.

I also added in some of the basil and some parsley, a very lovely salad indeed, we added just a touch of olive oil to dress.

Here is a link to some photos of our veg garden http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=15270&id=1704600319&l=7dd9dde144

Weekly Weigh In 22

The landfill bag weighed in at 175g this week.

David had had a friend to stay on Saturday, which added to the non recyclable plastics as sweets were bought and consumed.

All in all though still a good total, as it is below the 200g threshhold I have set us.
