Vitamin Boost Box (plus chocolate)


Desree spuds, onions, garlic, sprouts, parsnip, red cabbage & leeks

Yesterday, in a rare break in the dreary wet weather of late, I ventured over to the plot to harvest some veg for our friend Debbie.

Any remaining wrigglies I missed while washing them will add to Debbie’s protein intake and I hope speed her road to recovery. (I can’t however take credit for the Lindt chocolate reindeers!)

Hi Sarah, good to hear from you. Don't talk to me about wriggleys, I ended up not eating any more of my curly kale, it wasn't until I'd eaten half of it that I realised there were still caterpillars in it, and I had washed it, this experience has put me off curly kale for life. I wish I knew the secret of growing a good Lindt reindeer on my plot! x

Hi Sarah. Thank you for such a fantastic box of goodies - what a lovely suprise! Today at the Haven in London I had an amazing lentil stew with all the same vegies as in your box, so I am going to make one tomorrow (whilst eating the reindeers!)You are amazing! Baby greenfingers will be the healthiest baby in the land. Thank you - love Debbie x

Hi Mary, Congratulations on becoming a plot holder. There will be no hard feelings whatsoever- so long as you don't let your weeds go to seed! :-) Marianne told me that the plot had become available, but with a baby due in spring, I had to be realistic about what I will able to do next year, so said offer it to someone else. I'm sure we will run into each other and hope that you enjoy it. Take a look at my early posts and you'll see that mine looked just like yours does now, but it won't take long for you to turn it around. You're very welcome to help yourself to the pile of carpet next to my wooden box, if you like. See you soon, SWD

What a lovely present. It must be appreciated when youi have gone to so much effort to grow the stuff, wash it and wrap it up.
