Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.
Much as I love gadgets and things, I would have returned this kettle and just bought one that you actually have to go and switch on. After all you still need to put the tea / coffee in the cup, pour the water etc.

I didn’t have any luck growing pumpkins this year – although the slugs really enjoyed those that I did – so I bought a medium sized one from our local farm shop this week. My plan is to make pumpkin soup and possibly a few other things, depending on how much flesh I get from it. I then saw this video (one of my favourite TV chefs), so I’ll be giving this a try too!
