My very first blog post

Hail Damaged Courgettes
Hail Damaged Courgettes

This is my first foray into the world of blogging.

It’s pretty amazing how daunting a blank pages is. They say that you should always write about what you know so here we go.

I enjoy cooking, eating, photography and growing my own vegetables – all with a bit of help from my lovely boyfriend Richard. When I say “help”, he is very good at the eating and the growing!

I wanted to start this blog to give me somewhere that I can share my recipes and pictures.

To be honest I was a bit upset this morning. London has been praying for rain for the last three month and yesterday it came (and then some). I thought that it would be good for my very thirsty vegetables but boy was I wrong. When I went to have a look at my patch this morning it looked as if it had been attacked. My courgette leaves are full of holes, baby green tomatoes have been broken off and my beautiful lilies have been ripped to shreds. The storm that Rich and I had watched with excitement whilst eating dinner had taken its toll.
