The Good Life


We're not quite up to Tom & Barbara level yet. The only things we've had off the allotment so far are a few beetroot kindly donated by a neighbouring allotmenteer, and loads of blackberries, which are growing wild anyway. But yesterday we got our first, own-grown, crop!

A handful of "Congo" potatoes. We'll give them another week or two before we lift the rest. But in the meantime, we boiled these up and ate them with a little butter and salt. They are a dark purple colour, inside and out, and quite tasty. In some restaurants, that little snack would cost about £3.50!
