cooking, gardening, planning, To Do List

Planning, cooking and gardening – well, that’s the idea anyway

So this week at The Canny Lass, I have decided that a bit of planning about what I’m going to write about would be a good idea. I have been winging it lately and I really need to sit down and think about what I should talk about.

Future blog posts I’ve already looked at doing include: uses for bicarbonate of soda and green cleaning. I’m going to have a go at making my own dishwasher tablets and I’m going to use an old trick to clean my iron of dark stuff that is stuck to it. I’ll also discuss how I get on with some gardening I plan to do – I want to build and set up raised beds in which to grow vegetables. Is there anything you guys would like me to write about?

One thing I am going to do is go and visit a new plastic free type shop that’s opened in Helensburgh, near where I live. It’s a ‘fill your own container’ sort of place – right up my street. I am so fed up of everything being wrapped in plastic. I hate it. And I will get around to actually cooking my plums into something nice. They are currently in a bag in the fridge – mainly to keep them away from the fruit flies that have taken up residence in my kitchen despite my best efforts at keeping food out of their way. That’s on my to-do list for tomorrow. I really need to get myself out in the hedgerows to pick what’s left of the brambles (wild blackberries) that grow in such abundance in Scotland. I do like bramble jam. I could make it. Yum.

Right, I’m going to finish here for now as I have aforementioned plan to write up plus I need to chase up a Glasgow business I emailed last week to order some fruit trees.

Speak soon.
