I am getting in early today – it’s a big day at Uni. Four and a half hour class of “Art Installation” assessment, and 38 of us in the class.
OMG! Talk about “I never signed up for that!” (as an aside, I just tried to google that quote and variations of it to see who first said it – a lot of rabbit holes, but no joy. Anyone got any clues?)
Anyway – nasturtiums. They take over our place like aliens in winter, but they are so pretty, I just can’t rip them all out. And the bees LOVE them, and we love bees!
Having loads of flowers means quite a few seeds are now happening, although I discovered that harvesting them is quite time intensive (another procrastination technique – right up there with turning the compost for importance)!
And I LOVE that you can google anything – such as easy recipes for pickling nasturtium seeds, which are supposed to be like capers in the end. Not allowing the fact that I dislike both capers, and probably pickled nasturtium seeds, to put me off, I thought I’d invest the small amount of time and effort to try.
They are now sitting in the cupboard for the required 3 weeks, then will be unleashed onto pickle-loving family members. And I will crawl through the undergrowth, hunting and gathering some more…
Once the “Art Installation” is over, that is…
Happy days to you,
Sarah : )
