a productive if chilly day

Today was cold but bright and dry, so the washing on the line dried well.

I signed the tenancy agreement for the allotment plot I'm keeping, now all we need is Spring!
Today we are halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox...and the garden is frozen solid!!

After lunch I got all the mugs handled, two bags of clay kneaded and re-bagged and four bags of clay each made into ten little hump-backed bridge shapes on a ware board to dryout enough to throw.

Then on to a baking session...two onion quiches, a custard tart and half a dozen lentil and veg pasties.

Then feet up!!

Around 64 F here in southern Rhode Island in the USA, but it's supposed to get colder tonight and tomorrow. I wonder if the groundhog will see his shadow tomorrow ........Candlemas Day.

Quiche sounds yummy!

They sound yummee!

Was inspired by this post this evening - made lentil & veg pasties and they were extremely well received :)

Sarah, I cook diced potato with the lentils- adds a satisfying lumpiness!
