The freshest taste

Tuesday, July 30

A great advantage of being surrounded by fields is that you can go out and find the freshest vegetables, straight from the ground. It's a commonly known thing here that you pick from the middle parts, never the edge, and only take what you need.  After the fields have been harvested you can find stray crops left behind in the shuffle that would otherwise be churned back into the ground or eaten by wild rabbits. Treats left by the farmer for anyone with the time to look for them.

In the evening light we stuck out back to rummage through the mud and find a few potatoes to serve with our evening meal. They were soon mashed up and tasted delicious. Maybe forgetting to buy a bag wasn't a great loss after all..

3 note(s)..:

  1. I love this, it's so quaint and I love the sense of community! I know I've said it before, but I want to live where you live! x

  2. How lovely! What a great opportunity to get lots and lots of fresh fruit and veg! xxx

  3. What a great place you live in! I live by lots of fields too but they are used for things like wheat so we can't really take it!
