Green thing number one.
My mission to reduce my family's plastic consumption continues. Gone are the seven large plastic milk cartons which used to fill my fridge. Now we have six pint sized glass bottles (three times a week) which we can return to the milkman to be reused over and over again.
They are so satisfying to handle and so easy on the eye.
'Whoa, what's happened to the milk mum?'
'It's in bottles from the milkman'
'Cool......how do I get it out?'
We are saving the foil tops for recycling.
Green thing number two
Loving my leftovers.
Three spears of asparagus in hollandaise sauce, a spoonful of peas and the last slice of smoked ham.
All chopped together into a sandwich filling. Delicious.
Leftover salmon went into a kedgeree. The rice was cooked in stock made from the woody ends of the asparagus.
Green thing number three.
Our little push mower. Light enough for a child to use, although I couldn't find one willing to use it.
Perfectly adequate for our tiny lawn and so much quieter than a petrol or an electric mower. Took me less than ten minutes.
Speckled wood butterfly.
