The very first Delizia
cucumber was picked today. This is a lovely, small and pale skinned cucumber which looks as if it is going to be very prolific.
Freshly picked and eaten this has a really wonderful and refreshing taste!
Meanwhile I dug some of my Epicure
new potatoes which had been left in the ground for a while. No longer small and waxy, these now make great baking potatoes. The Epicure
is an old Ayrshire potato with a light floury texture!
Meanwhile in London this morning we had such a rainfall that it made national news. In my back garden the lawn was under 4 or 5 inches of rainwater and all these little chafer grubs
were coming up for air! This grub of the chafer beetle
lives under lawns and nibbles away at the roots. This time of year they are fat and juicy!
Just the ticket for 3 hungry chickens we are looking after for a couple of weeks. This little plate full were gone in about 10 seconds!
Where's the rest? More please!
