Great news, my pirates. This week, we are eating almost exclusively food freshly cooked and directly from the garden. Total food miles around here are measured in meters, and performed by humans! Every day sees potatoes being dug, pumpkins plucked, courgettes tweaked and tomatoes teased from the vine. It’s the slowest week of the year in the garden, and the one with the greatest profusion of riches. I’m going to enjoy it for a week, and when we get into September, I’m going to really crack on with filling the stores. I’ve got a month to make as many jars of goodies as possible.
Great work! Great news! How gratifying be so well stocked, in spite of the adversities you have faced. Keep on keeping on.

Are you going to do the same grains for next year? Has it been worth the effort? I’m sure the first lot of freshly baked bread will mean that’s a ‘yes’, but you know what I mean. 😄
It all sounds wonderful. There's nothing like a food garden for cheering the soul. Getting lots from my potager too Ben. It's a wonderful feeling. Have a wonderful week. Can anyone join the video?
