First BBQ 2015

It was beautiful weather yesterday. Our first warm day of the year. After a morning of hard work in the garden it was Wine Time.

Time for the first BBQ of the year. Our last BBQ of 2014 was in November. We hardly had any Winter.

I marinated the Brussel sprouts in mustard and olive oil. Not too bad. But the combination of prawns & Brussel sprouts is not something I will repeat in the near future.

The herb garden bed is still waiting to be finished. I planted some thyme and oregano that I still had in pots from the old house. I’m not sure they will get through winter. But we haven’t had any frost yet, so who knows. Herb garden bed

Our new bird feeder needs to be repaired too. It crashed over during Friday’s storm (windforce 9) and bits of the roof came off.

Pity it’s not the best weather to work in the garden.

Hail storm

So, I stayed inside and made apple pie instead.
