Boy we've been slack around here! Over two weeks since our last post just isn't good enough - must try harder.

We've been busy though. Lifting and drying hundreds of onions (all that's needed now is the will to plait them), picking and shelling endless pea pods, dealing with what could only be described as a jungle of docks, lifting and drying mounds of spuds and preparing the garden for the local garden competition (we're in the 'biodiversity', or 'scruffy howff' category) in the little spare time we have had.

This morning we had a breakfast party with some friends - almost completely home produced, with scrambled eggs, streaky smoked bacon, herb sausages, grilled tomatoes and fried potatoes. If only I'd lifted those field mushrooms last week we could have done the whole shebang...

Well, I maybe overplayed the garden compo. Preparation consisted mostly of sweeping up chicken shit and strimming the weeds from the paths and patios! We're not terribly hopeful, but thought it important to support a local competition that encourage biodiversity.
