Hi everyone! I haven't posted for ages as you may have noticed. We had a bad experience on holiday in France concerning my daughter's nut allergy which knocked me sideways for a while and directed my energies away from the blog and to some extent the allotment as well. However, we are a bit more sorted out now and I am looking forward to doing some lottie stuff.
I have been going down every few days since we got back and doing some picking though - mainly tomatoes, runner beans, courgettes, raspberries and now sweetcorn.

Sue has done some brilliant work while she has been off sick over the Summer: mainly pasta sauces, jams, compotes, syrups and cordials, fruit gin etc etc. All of these deserved a full post as they were being made but I will take some pictures soon to give you an idea.

The food markets in France were superb - again I will post some photos soon as KT suggested some time ago. All the best, Mike.

Thought you had decided to move out there !!!

Welcome back.

I have access to French markets and supermarkets any day of the week. Well, only Wednesdays and Saturdays for the markets.

Karen, Switzerland. Eat your heart out !!!

Nice to see a new post.. I have been checking your blog as the pics and write ups are excellent. I have just started my own blog - partly inspired by you, i.e., trying to upload really good photos. (i wont plug my blog - that would otherwise appear to be the only reason for this comment !)
Keep up the good work - we HAVE missed you.. no coments doesnt mean we havent kept checking.. waiting.. Andy

Sorry to hear about your daughter's bad reaction-hope she's now fully recovered?
I was up north in August if I recall correctly we visited your part of the Fylde when Mum,my 13 year old daughter and I went on a bus ride from Gt Eccleston to St Annes-anyway if you spotted an embarrassed older Mum and her child in a pedalo on the water by the pier it wwas us-I'm sure I was doing more than 50% of the pedalling!!!

I have been logging on day in and day out to your blog and got really worried.

I left it for a few days - and here you are back again.

So sorry to hear of your daughters scare and I do so hope that she is now recovered.

Sending my best wishes to you all - and just letting you know that your absence was noticed.
Glad you are back.
