1. More cutting from the garden, tulips, stolen lilac, poppy leaf, honeysuckle, magnolia, daisy, mint and the like.
2. Harvesting the first of the lettuce and some pansy, with mint and chives. The mint is a very pretty frilled edge variety. I bought it as a growing pot from the supermarket last year, it is gaining some length, expect it in bouquets in the shop soon.
3. Homemade pizza, i try and make lots of dough at once and freeze it for a quick supper. This was from a batch that didn't have enough salt in it.....
A topping of creme fraiche, chervil, mint, sage and oregano from the garden, asparagus, parmesan, squeeze of lemon and olive oil.
4. If you are going to do all of this, you must wear slutty shoes, otherwise you just become a cliche.
I had lunch with my beloved boys, shopping with The other Miss Pickering, and The Stamford Hen has finally returned. I also watched The Darling buds of May, not seen since school, it is the blueprint of we value today. tumbledown Oast house, lunching under apple trees, growing hops...Perfick.
What did you do? Did we win the Dorset cereal award for April? There has been no offical confirmation, no eggcup in the post, no big box of cereal....
