Not technically a 2nd home but it certainly is the first piece of land I have been able to rent and pay for in full for a whole year! yippeee! Already we felt the community spirit of our 'other home' as we met some of our neighbours yesterday. Tim also noticed a root vegetable ready for harvest that had fortunately been left on 'our land' and so I got stuck into digging for treasure and found a whole load of parsnips!
Parsnip and Apple soup c/o Prue Leith with sour dough bread from the Blackbird Bakery - yummy!
By the way, check out the edible bustop. What a blinkin great idea! one lives round the corner from me - we spotted strawberry plants emerging - and the other has the most fantastically tall sunflowers and courgettes growing in the height of Summer. Love it! and I totally support the social element behind it - imputting time and energy as a community. Wouldnt it be great if this was implemented all over the country?!
