Pottering About

I spent Friday pottering about the house and garden.  It was quite a bright day just perfect for getting little jobs done that have had to be put off all week because of the rain.

Here's my new mint plant which I managed to get potted up is such a vigorous grower and I love to use it chopped up over boiled new potatoes.

When I was a little girl I have fond memories of being at my Nan's house for Sunday lunch and being asked to go into the garden and gather mint leaves.....I would then bring them into the kitchen and chop them as finally as I could, put them into a small jug, add a teaspoon of sugar, a dash of boiling water and top up with vinegar and I would then have the most delicious jug of homemade mint sauce to go with the roast lamb.  I still use this method today to make yummy mint sauce.


  1. That looks great. I don't have mint in the garden, but maybe I will try to grow it in a pot too ; )
    Have a great weekend.

  2. It is so easy to grow in a pot and so handy to have on a kitchen windowsill x
