When I first started this blog, I wondered how I was ever going to come up with 91 ideas, one for each spring day. While it's only Day 20, I realised today that it's not me coming up with the ideas. They're just springing up around me in this fab country of ours where we have access to so much good food, whether home grown, bought or foraged. It's everywhere.
I was pretty excited to pick this little purple pearler today, all framed and pretty in her purple frills. Whoever named it red cabbage is clearly colour blind; they're purple - and you sure know it when you cook it together with other veg. Everything ends up a lovely shade of blue. Not pink.
As a first time cabbage grower, I was chuffed as ever when I threw half of it into a pot.
As a woman on a mission to clear out the shed before hard rubbish collection day tomorrow, I was mortified as ever when I burned it.
Clean shed, charcoal-ed cabbage and burnt pot later, I decided there's no point fighting it, or anything for that matter.
It is what it is.
Real people are much better than views measured on a line graph. Say hi and, if you like, share anything about food or garden or even what the
high point in your day was today.
We’re all in this together folks.
Here’s to feeling good!
