We went over to the local fruit growers HQ to collect the last of our fruit order (they supplied raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb, etc in the autumn) This time it was no quite fruit - asparagus! This was the last item on our list. They supplied 5 plants for £2 - a real bargain but then we probably have spent over £100 on our list! My husband stripped yet more turf off the field to start to prepare the trench and tomorrow will build up the ground for the asparagus roots. I probably should have done more housework like washing - but why waste such a beautiful day. Even tea tonight was a simple pasta dish with chicken and pancetta in a cheese sauce with peas and carrots.
I posted off my entry to the BBC painting competition yesterday. Not as good as some on the gallery but I enjoyed taking up the challenge. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02kgkhg/p02kfzgb
What was shocking was the cost of sending this postcard - 63p!!
