Lately more and more of our regular meals are coming from the garden; kale, chard, lettuce, leek as well as my red onion marmalade and preserved lemons. Recently we’ve been able to bandicoot for potatos, saphire seeds and dutch creams have surfaced so far, and we are also enjoying a lot fo french sorrel.

Today Ron busied himself making delicious fluffy pancakes with all the eggs our hens have been laying. I ate them with the rhubarb and ginger preserve our neighbour Sam made together with a dash of mascarpone cheese.
