you would not believe how the garden has exploded with growth over the week that we were away… I have mini courgettes and the carrots have gone bonkers… although i think I’ve totally overcrowded them and will no doubt end up with mini carrots, which i shall call ‘baby’ carrots and to hell with it!
I simply cannot wait to start cooking with everything… i’m enjoying scouring recipe books in anticipation… I was perhaps slightly over-excited about the prospect of the veg and picked one beetroot and one carrot and as you can see… it think I have a while to go…
also, it seems we have a strawberry thief in the village… just as they turn red they magically disappear. I’m assuming it’s a bird but if you read in the news about a spate of garden related murders in Lincolnshire you know I’ve caught the neighbours at it!
made a salad with British asparagus, home grown lettuce, mozzarella and olives for lunch. I can’t get enough of the asparagus and I think I’ll attempt growing my own next year… if i’m allowed the room in the garden!
eat and of course, enjoy!

menuda suerte tener un jardin y cultivar tus cosas, yo no puedo porque vivo en un piso, pero me encantaria!!

Dominic – I also have a strawberry thief, most likely a field mouse from the nest in the back lane. I keep finding half eaten strawbs in the middle of the lawn despite them being protected by rings of netting. The galling thing is that they are half eaten – if you don't like em stop nicking them…..I hate those meeeeces to pieces…
