Onion Sets, Peggy Seeger and Friends

09 Apr

We spent the morning at the allotment planting many onion sets, red and white looking forward to a good harvest. You’ll have to look closely to see them!

The post today brought me my pre-ordered copy of Peggy Seeger’s new cd – First Farewell. I’ve been watching her online each Sunday tea-time and many weeks ago, in an online Songs of Protest with Greenham Common women, Peggy sang one of her new songs that really touched me, “How I Long For Peace.” Another gem on this wonderful album is, “Gotta Get Home By Midnight.” I love how she is laughing on the cover and that all the music is made with her sons and daughters in law. It’s truly beautiful in every way.

What a lovely afternoon we had with friends in the garden! We caught up on news and laughed and laughed –  a tonic for us all. The cakes went down well too – the Heligan Pineapple Cake and Sticky Ginger Cake, a new recipe from Cornish Kitchen.

    How lovely to have an allotment. My brother and his wife are looking at an allotment tomorrow and I think I am more excited than them! The sticky ginger cakes looks spot on. I am partial to Stones Bakery’s ginger cake (Falmouth). I’m not too aware of Peggy’s music but I love it when families record records together. Lulu x
