Anyone who blogs with Cro Magnon will, like me, be green with envy at the wonderful variety and quality of the vegetables and fruit he grows in Haddocks.
Well, at last, today we have begun to harvest some of the produce from our own, rather Northerly, garden. In fact today's lunch consisted of everything we had grown ourselves (apart from the milk, and there was a time when that would have been home-produced too).
We had field mushrooms from the pasture in an omelette, using our own eggs. With it we had young broad beans with parsley sauce (both beans and parsley from the garden) and followed it with fresh raspberries (our own) and cream. Not only was there great satisfaction in the eating of it but also in the fact that all the farmer's hard work had at last come to fruition.
Now there is a huge quantity of peas to pod and freeze!
