We still have a couple of baby brassicas in the poly tunnel at the allotment and today we had a little visitor. Do any of you lovely readers know what it is? I left it alone so I’m hoping its favourite food isn’t young Kale!

I love the following poem by Brian Bilston who has very kindly given me permission to share it with you. I love how, in the humour, he always manages to raise the political and to make clear his feelings. Thank you, Brian.

I have spent much of the afternoon in the shade of the arbour, reading. When I looked up, this was my view, Sweet Peas and Sweet Corn in the raised beds against a backdrop of a cerulean sky The tassels on the corn are turning brown so we should be able to harvest them quite soon.
When it was a little cooler, we went down to the allotment to water the cucumbers, courgettes and squash. While the lovely Mr S was doing that I was taking photos of bees on a neighbour’s very dark bronze sunflowers.
Friends came round this afternoon for tea in the garden and what a joy it was to entertain again after such a long time. Both couples brought a garden posy for us and I put them all together to make a delightful colourful bunch.As you, Dear Readers, know, we have lots of courgettes in the allotment. For this afternoon I made Courgette and Cheese Soda bread which we had sliced and buttered. followed by Chocolate Courgette Cake which was scrummy!
In the vintage store, Daisy Rain Vintage, where all sorts of treasures can be found, was this old mincer, enamelled and really rather lovely. The one we had at home was just a grey metal and I remember well making mince using it. Any readers remember same?
