This was the view as I left the house on Friday morning in my winter coat. It turned out to be way too warm for a winter coat and scarf, but it definitley LOOKED like winter.
These also made up last sundays lunch at my mothers house. The first time I had actually cooked my carrots. Oh and the beets. I love beets. There was also massive amounts of chard. This concoction was gorgeous. Podded and unpodded runnerbeans, rainbow chard, fresh tomatos, garlic and onions. Yum. The onions weren't home grown but I have just bought sets to plant this weekend for summer onions next year. There has also been knitting, in the form of lots of fingerless mittens. I am about to start my 4th pair. I just made up the pattern as I went along and these ones are made from bits of Noro Kureyon (from the same ball) There has also been a minimal amount of knitting on Arisaig - Its not a quick knit and I have been really lazy about it. I'm happy that the photo came out this colour though. Its much darker really, but I know its purple really.
