A big chunk of Sunday was spent on the allotment, lifting our first potatoes and generally letting the sunshine and soil provide a break from reading. This evening we boiled our first potatoes, and ate them with home made pesto. Life is much much better than twelve months ago…

The asparagus season has started in England, and while at home in Norfolk over the weekend we celebrated the arrival of this wonderful crop. Dishes tried so far have included asparagus lasagne (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it), asparagus and eggs for breakfast and (perhaps my favourite) simply steamed asparagus served with melted butter and fresh garlic.
Sadly I’m back in the city now, and have yet to see such thick purpley-green stems in any of the shops.
