We spent Tuesday working in the garden and the kitchen
This is the inside of the garage – the Tanking Slurry which Bob has painted over the lower part of the walls and some of the floor is drying well. It goes on an alarming khaki colour – but dries to a pale sage hue*.
Meanwhile, my Beach Hut Smoker Cover is looking stunning. I spent the morning painting it with undercoat/primer. Today I hope to do the top coat. Isn’t it cool?
In the afternoon I was busy in the kitchen – I stripped Sunday’s chicken and made a pie, and some stock. Then the stock formed the basis of a pan of vegetable soup.
Finally I mixed some rhubarb [from a neighbour here] some apples [brought with us, from a friend in Ferndown] and some plums [picked and bottled here last autumn] into a couple of crumbles.
