Style Makeover

In case anyone thought I'd disappeared into thin air, I am in fact still here, but have undergone an inadvertent style makeover. I thought I would try one of Blogger's new template designs, just for a bit of a change, and of course, it made my blog almost unreadable. So I had to spend ages messing about trying to make it ok again. Whilst I enjoy blogging, messing about with computers is not my most favourite occupation, in fact it seems like a bit of a waste of time when you're already up to your eyes in apple based  harvesting activities viz

Amazing how those Ikea bags do come in handy isn't it?

So it was easier to put it to one side as one job to do "later on", like say, hoovering under the spare bed. Fortunately I did eventually get round to sorting it, and it didn't turn into one of those many jobs at Carters Barn whose appointed hour never arrives, like ironing underpants and stuffing mushrooms, or you may never have heard from me again. What a lucky escape you almost had!

Not to mention these vast quantities of climbing french beans that I never got round to picking green, and had consequently produced a harvest of these

I've never had home dried beans before, but there were too many to allow them to go to waste, so they're in the kitchen finishing the drying process, and I will see what they taste like in casseroles and so on. Worst case scenario I'll have a home produced supply of chicken feed!


  1. Wow I am so impressed by your apple harvest - very organised - I knew those Ikea bags would be useful one day!

  2. That's a lot of apples bet you're glad you got the press for this years harvest.

  3. Did you go scrumping again dear ?
    That's an impressive amount of apples, and I didn't see a worm in one.
    You must have gotten the blogger template sorted out, because it looks grand.
    I on the other hand am afraid to take the plunge, it took me the better part of 2009 to figure the one I have now out :)

  4. There is nothing more annoying when something on the computer does not go as planned!!!! That apple harvest looks fantastic. Diane

  5. I think you are going to like the dry beans, we often leave some of our "regular" green beans to dry on the vine. Look at all of those apples, processing them will be quite a project.

    I'm afraid to try and change my templates, I just know that I will make a mess of things if I try and messing about with computer mumbo jumbo is one of my least favorite things too.:)

  6. nice to realise that you have not gone forever!

  7. Dear Kathy, I do sympathise. It seems to me with computers that it is all or nothing. In my recent 'makeover' I went through several periods of blankness and everything disappearing before finally order was restored. As you say, it is all wonderful when it is working but so much time is wasted when it is not.

    I do like your new look, however, and think that the colours are very restful and perfect for this mellow season!

  8. That's indeed a lot of apples. And yes, ikea bags sure do come in handy.

  9. What a bountiful crop of apples, I have never done my beans before because it is always easier to buy them at the market (lazy). Very impressive.
