    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

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
