    I am still giggling at the concept of having a ‘green tooth’ ! That’s me for sure! My favourite snack is a freshly steamed bowl of something just picked from the allotment. At the moment it’s beans and courgettes.

    mmm. I steamed savoy cabbage, spinach, peas and courgette last night (mix of Mum-grown and shop-bought), and decided to chuck over some balsamic vinegar dressing and it was lovely, with tofu burgers (tofu, grated carrott, peanut butter, breadcrumbs, onions). Went down well with vegan sis and non-vege Mum . x

    I visit your blog for the first time and find myself saying ‘oh no’ as soon as the photo loads – not more bountiful green peas! Mine have failed this year, and it’s the one thing that I would eat like sweets – I share your green tooth.

    thank you all for sharing your lovely comments pea fans :o) I’ve just returned from 5 days in the Isle of Man and taking a sneaky peak with a cuppa before tackling the washing! If I’d had time to post about my tomatoes before leaving you might have thought my absence was a sign of mourning – more to follow on that one!
    Kirstypo – what a delicious dinner, I don’t do much with tofu but will have to try out that combination.
    Linda – sorry to hear you’re missing out on the green delights this year. I only had a handful and will taking tips from neighbour next time to get bucket loads like him.
    Matron and mc – glad to hear my green toothed antics brought a smile to your face

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
