It has been raining relentlessly for days, which has made gardening impossible, so we’ve been lying low and cooking and visiting friends. However, I have been to see the chickens and given them treats, mostly pasta and collecting their eggs and I couldn’t resist a quick look at everything in the garden. As I was inspecting my not so neat rows of stuff I chanced upon some radish that not only needed thinning out but were ripe for picking, we’ll eat them tonight dipped in salt, I know it’s not a big deal, but it’s the first thing we’ve pulled out of the ground since arriving, there will be lots more but the radish will always be the first.
