The asparagus bed, although not exactly prolific yet, has provided enough for a few meals so far and I must say it tastes heavenly. This is one that got away.
Our broad beans have been a complete disaster and we've given up and planted some more seed that Jack, our lotty neighbour, gave us.

A few miles up the coast at Sunderland point, we do have a rather poignant and permanent reminder of Lancaster's less than savoury involvement in the slave trade in the form of Sambo's Grave.
It's not a very sensible contribution to the debate just to feel crap about it all is it? Sometimes music helps pull me back a bit though, and I guess if anything remotely positive can be said to have arisen out of slavery then I guess 'the blues' might just come close. Not even sure of my ground there though either.
