...there's both eatin' and drinkin' in it

Sunday in the Garden of Eatin’

I took the opportunity to spend some time in the garden today – there were blue skies for a change and some unexpected warmth, given the time of year. What started as some overdue weeding of the now emptied veg plot turned into some digging instead (as the weeds were getting well settled in). The reward for my digging efforts, however, was to find a fully sized spud in the patch from which all other spuds were long gone, having been steamed, buttered and scoffed with great pleasure by family and hangers on over the summer.

When I brought the straggler in, fully intent on having him meet with the same fate as his mates, I scrubbed the dirt and found that my potato had a face…

No longer an anonymous spud, the potato got a reprieve, The Daily Spud got it’s Poster Boy (not to mention its first post!) and I had some pesto for dinner instead…
