We needed something for Dan's sandwiches next week and so we went for this, buy a bag for £1 (all proceeds to the RNLI) and get some muffins free! I thought maybe there would be a couple of muffins in the pack, but no, a full pack of six. Bargain.
We have also signed up for one of those 3 for £3 magazine mini subscriptions to Kitchen Garden magazine which comes with some packets of seeds. We really want to expand the amount we grow next year so the free seeds will really help. I have organised the seeds we have already in my repurposed tin and we have quite a good amount to get us going. Dan suggested we have a book for garden planning and other ideas so I dug out a 2015 I got as a free gift from The Book People but hadn't used, it's a RHS one so fits the bill with lots of nice pictures of flowers.
Father very kindly bought some plants for me when we visited a garden centre yesterday - small pots were 8 for £10 and he only wanted 5 so I got to choose 3 for myself. He also brought some mystery tomato plants. His friend had given him the plants, but more than enough as he was growing a fair few varieties already, so he donated two plants to me - his friend didn't know what variety they were, so we won't either until they start to fruit. My parents also gave us some cut rhubarb and a few yellow courgettes, which were much appreciated.
All this and my first sprouted seeds are ready to eat.
