For Easter this year we bought the kids some different seeds by James Wong from Suttons Seeds, planting trays and a greenhouse.
C received electric daisies which taste like fizzy sherbet and 9v batteries!
B had cucamelons which look like tiny watermelons and taste of cucumbers.
L had strawberries which taste of vanilla and pineapple.
R had tomatiloes which will taste of lime.
The weather was so stormy Easter weekend that we didn't dare put the greenhouse outside though, so it's currently by our back door in the dining room! Fingers crossed the weather continues to improve so it can go outside soon.
C's seeds have already started to grow.
Looking forward to having some tasty treats in the summer.
I'm struggling when I run with pains in my shins. My Asics are fairly old, so I've treated myself to a new pair of Gel-Pulse 7's.
The only trouble is that I've been full of cold since they arrived so I've not had chance to try them out 😢. I'm hoping that I'll be feeling up to a jog next week with R to check out the cushioning protection of the gel insole, they felt promising as I wore them around the house, but it's not quite the same thing!
I have learnt that I am a heavy footed runner and am keen to find ways to stop being so elephant like as I plod about. If anyone has any tips I'd be most grateful to hear them.
I've also found that I'm struggling with running outside. On the treadmill I can do 5K, but when I go outside I struggle to run 3K. Again any hints or tips will be most welcome.
I will post a review of the trainers once I've tried them out a few times.
