Today as I came in from the garden after foraging a lone leek volunteer from last years crop I found John preparing, with care, a lovely luncheon.
John and I have always had a deal. He cooks and I will clean up.

Scavenging in our vegetable drawer usually produces additions from the garden such as freshly picked onion tops, parsley and carrot.
