  1. Gotta love swapsies

    by , 06-07-2009 at 07:25 PM
    After a horrible day at work I was feeling very stressed. But then a friend of ours dropped round with some goodies from his lottie and demanded in return some more of the elderflower cordial I gave to him last week. It felt great, not only to be getting free food, but that someone liked my homemade goodies enough to want more. This is what it's all about :-)

  2. 1st Broad Beans

    by , 05-07-2009 at 07:24 PM
    I harvested my first Sutton Dwarf Broad Beans (sowed on 11th March) yesterday, a dozen pods that mostly had 4 or 5 beans inside

    I got more beans out of these than I've been getting lately in the 1.00 (500g) bags from Asda!

    They tasted superb. I've never tasted them so fresh. Brilliant!

    Spent today looking at dragonflies and damselflies.

    The weather was not in our favour, but we had a good days count.
