A lot of allotted vegetables...

Our green-fingered son Les and his wife Jen are living the Good Life.
You'll remember they brought me a basket of vegetables for Father's Day.
Over the last few weeks they have bombarded us with courgettes, onions, cabbages and many other vegetables from their allotment near Blackhall.
Today I decided to go and pay them a visit. It was more like farming than gardening.
So many varieties of potatoes, cabbages, tomatoes, peppers...
I once mentioned that one of my favourite vegetables was fennel. They decided to give them a try. They are some of the tastiest I have ever tasted. Check out the leaves on them.

Aubergines and gherkins are next.
Their noisy hens have also rewarded us with many delicious eggs.

Great to see that.
One of my friends who used to drive Elizabeth David round Europe always put the feathery bits of fennel in her salads which I enjoyed.

Elizabeth David! Wow. The doyenne of chefs!
I love the feathers off fennel. Salads, pastas, fish, marinades... Absolutely gorgeous!

Un jardin potager, un jardin de rapport mais aussi d'agrément.

Voilà une excellente occupation, surtout pour les personnes âgées.

Adam est génial, je l'envie !
