Very soon these nasturtiums will be mulched by the first frost. So it was nice to be able to preserve them for posterity. This is the back gate to "Piggling Bland's Garden."
So named by "she who is proficient at separating eggs," when she was very little.
In the story by Beatrix Potter, Piggling Bland inhabits a marvelous pottager and skips around in her white petticoat eating conversation peppermints. Mine started off being a pottager, with companion planting and all. But the white cabbage butterflies completely ignored the marigolds put there to ward them off, and just layed their eggs with gay abandon. My brassicas were a scene of complete devastation, and I gave up and the pansies and roses and nasturtiums took over. But we did have conversation peppermints there at one of the birthday parties. We have a recipe for same. Rather sickly I recall.
I have started to list a few of my handmade things on Felt, which is a site quite like Etsy, but based in New Zealand. Etsy looked all a bit difficult, but would love your comments and advice
on your experiences with selling via Etsy. This little cardy is for my little Great Niece Lucy. It's just a Lucy kind of cardigan :P But shhh! don't tell her. I want it to be a surprise.
