Community garden

Yesterday morning, walking along a public footpath in the Bath, we stumbled across a small patch of land. In a small clearing between overgrown hedgerow, someone has created a little vegetable plot and invited passers by to help themselves. It was brimming with seasonal produce – beetroot leaves, courgettes and rocket. It’s all in the name of transition bath who run guerilla gardening events to turn unused public land into community vegetable patches. I think I’ll be back this week to pick a courgette to 2!



C’est fini!

This evening I finished making my patchwork quilt. It’s a combination of 324 patches, all individually selected, including fabrics from Liberty, John Lewis and pieces of my childhood blanket, made from Laura Ashley Wood Violet. I’m now plotting my next project…



 

Lazy lunch

Today we tried out Sam’s Kitchen on Walcot Street. It was busy inside so we ate al fresco on the bistro style tables out the front. We chose a mixed platter to share between us – it was the perfect mix of roasted red peppers, new potatoes, greek salad, olives, vine cherry tomatoes, 3 cheeses, 4 cured meats and rocket leaves. Plenty of variety and just the right amound for 2 people to share without bickering!



The White Hart

Last night we went to The White Hart in Widcombe for the first time. Who knows why it’s taken us so long to visit because the food was delicious! I had the special of grilled mackerel to start and Jon had grilled squid. We then both had grilled hake with samphire in a mussel and prawn sauce. The flickering candles and the chalkboard reserved signs dotted on every table made for a wonderful and bustling atmosphere. We’ll be back very,very soon.
