Made me smile, there is no experience quite like allotment therapy is there? I am loving the process of finding new blogs by clicking on the river of stones blog roll - I have really enjoyed reading some of your adventures with words.
Hi cilla. Thanks for dropping by and for taking the time to leave a comment. My allotment has missed me for a few weeks, but it was great to have a good dig at the weekend! Like you, I've found some new writers to enjoy by reading the stones blogroll. Thanks again.
It must be very rewarding to grow something and make soup or stew with the harvest. The monkeys do the harvesting for us here so I've given up growing my own vegs.
Hi Robyn. Rewarding and delicious, but also at the mercy of the elements and all the creatures of the world who drop by to eat it first! Crows, pigeons, flocks of baby sparrows and caterpillars are our equivalent of your monkeys. You could try growing a couple of things in big pots somewhere the monkeys can't get to. (I know - like in a jail!!)
There's nothing quite like the feeling of dirt under your nails! And the word 'parsnips' immediately made me think of autumnal days, simmering soups and cozy kitchens. That's quite a range for one small stone!Well done!
Hi Emily. Thanks so much for dropping by and for leaving a comment. Pleased the stone said so much!! Sadly, our crop wasn't great this year, possibly because of such mild weather, so they are a skinny hoard. However, roasted in olive oil and herbs for about 20 mins there were still empty plates all round!
I love the word parsnipsand going home "dirty" from the harvest. Enjoying these all.
Hi mansuetude. It's an odd name for something that tastes so good!! yes, very dirty nails that day. Pleased you're enjoying the stones. Thanks.
