Today’s picture is of a label and a bit tongue in cheek.
I managed to injure my left index finger back in June, and although it’s hardly going to make any headlines, it has been painful when I bend it.
Anyway, after another X-ray, it appears that it is mainly soft tissue damage and I need to give it lots of exercise. One of the main reasons this has been frustrating is that it has prevented me from playing my guitar (which has pleased the wife 🤣).
Whilst in town yesterday, I popped into a homoeopathic shop and the kind lady suggested a CBD muscle balm. We read the back and had a chuckle with one sentence…..
We had a few sad looking vegetables in the fridge, and so my clever wife made a delicious soup.
Carrots, peppers, sweet potato, cumin, paprika, cannellini beans, leaks, tomatoes and courgettes, with some chili oil were thrown in the soup maker and the result was fab, mopped up with some warm bread.
When the kids were young, it was a great way of getting veggies in them, and I remember the guessing game we played, trying to identify the ingredients.
Oh…. I must get my ears checked, Aubergines grow on plants 🤣.
Mrs L was given this plant for her birthday from a friend and she is delighted to announce that there are already 2 fruits (yes, fruit not vegetables), and lots more flowers.
According to Wikipedia…..Eggplant, aubergine or brinjal is a plant species in the nightshade family Solanaceae. Solanum melongena is grown worldwide for its edible fruit. Most commonly purple, the spongy, absorbent fruit is used in several cuisines. Typically used as a vegetable in cooking, it is a berry by botanical definition.
All we need to do now is wait until it gets a little larger and guard it from our Greek house guest, as her speciality is Moussaka.
An amazing Fungi seen on a tree whilst playing golf this afternoon.
I am pretty sure it is a bracket fungi, but there are so many different types.
Bracket fungi feed on wood, either as living trees or dead logs, and the brackets are their fruiting bodies. These form shelf-like structures singly or in groups and normally stick out from the trunk or branches though some develop from infected roots and appear at ground level. They can vary in size from a few centimetres to the giant polypore (Meripilusgiganteus), which can reach 1m across. There are scores of different species including the gruesome beefsteak fungus that looks like raw meat and produces red juice when cut, and the more attractive chicken of the woods, which is bright yellow and a gourmet delicacy.
