Ever since our trip to RAF Lossiemouth in September I have been craving fish finger sandwiches. The one in the Officers Mess (no photo unfortunately) was quite something …. so this my own version with home made dill pickles. I am guessing that a food fit for Tornado pilots is going to keep me going through the day.
Every Autumn I watch on Gardeners World as they extoll the virtues of making leaf mould. For several years I had access to the most sublime and inexhaustible supply of leaf mould. We could date the age of it through the layers by identifying the year according to crisp packet design!
When we first set up the allotment I penciled in the leaf mould pen in my initial drawing and it so it was constructed. All summer it has sat there empty, patiently waiting for the seasons to change.
Finally the leaves started to fall and I was out the front of house picking up pile after pile of leaves. (The advantage of living in a garden city is the plentiful supply of trees outside my house.)
The bin is now full and I wait for the leaves to their magical stuff in decomposition.
