Really starting to reap the rewards of my little kitchen garden (which, after a raid on the lettuces, looks a little like Peter Rabbit has been at it). The potatoes and shallots are pushing their way out of the ground, courgettes (zucchini) are beautifully crisp and firm, but it’s these babies I’m going to relish today – fresh green asparagus. Yum.

It’s been a guest-free week, the calm before the summer storm, so it’s been all about loading up on anti-histamines and tackling the garden (view from the woodland dell towards the gardens above). Nearly done, so time to focus on the summer seasonal menu this weekend.
