And so the cycle begins again. New arrivals at the allotment today. Tamworth/Old Spot cross. Happy out free ranging in the paddock. This is how pigs should be reared.

Last night & today has mainly been spent trying to contain some escapees.  Thank goodness it's been sunny and dry today. I only managed to accumulate a couple of cms of stinking mud on my boots.  I have earned a G&T or two later I think.  How's your Saturday been?

It looks like an alien but borage is beautiful after the rain. Still blooming in the colder weather. For now anyway.

Courgettes collected last night (when it was far drier and sunnier!). Today they'll be finely sliced seasoned with sea salt and fresh garlic then flash grilled. I'll squeeze fresh lemon juice on top before serving. They're always one of the first Spring crops to produce well and we'll be eating them all Summer long!  This particular plant @lidlireland sent to me at the end of March!

Back on the overnight protein oats this morning. Despite getting a rotten dose of bronchitis I've still lost 0.7kg this week. I'm really missing my hot yoga though. Hopefully I'll be well enough come Sunday to get a proper stretch on.
