Before we knew that the lovely Mr S would be getting his new knee in February, we planted green manure in three of our beds at the lottie with the intention of digging it all in in the Spring. Today, lovely friends from the allotment community have helped us – one dug over the three plots and then sent us the photo and another helped with weeding the bed where we have now lifted the last of our leeks. Thank you to them both for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
Another friend lent me a book she thought I would enjoy – and I did. It is a beautiful story of unexpected friendships, dark secrets and the aftermath of grief, told with tenderness and humour. Thank you, H. .
While we waited for the broker who is going to sell our boat for us, I enjoyed looking at the patterns made by the reflections of masts in the water at the quayside.
No cygnets today, just the parents who mate for life.
I haven’t been going to my choir, Suitcase Singers, in Penryn for a number of reasons. Yesterday they recorded this traditional Ukrainian folk song, Zelenje zhyto, zelene transcribed by Natalie Nowyytzki, directed by Claire Ingleheart At times like this, it is so hard to know what to do but we can always sing and use our voices in solidarity.
Here are the last few of the onions we grew last year. We are going to have to buy for a few months until the ones planted today, more than last year, are ready for harvest.

A couple of days ago when I posted about the delicious lemon cake, JR commented about another of Rachel Roddy’s recipes and I looked it up, Tagliatelle with lentil and mushroom ragu. It also sounded delicious and came with the recommendation from a friend so I made it for this evening – truly scrumptious.
