Potager, Leftovers, Castle. In That Order

10 Apr


Hot hot hot today! It was too good to stay indoors and we’re lucky to have an enclosed garden so I spent most of the day working on it. It’s the silver lining in the lockdown, having time to do stuff like this. The garden was really scruffy and overgrown after the very wet and mild winter. We’ve got a mixture of fruit, vegetables and decorative plants so I suppose that technically it’s a potager. My Japanese acer is just coming into leaf and the colour is fabulous.


I had some leftovers in the fridge, a bit of pastry from when I made quiche the other day, some laverbread and a scrap of bacon, so I put them together to make a Welsh pizza, topped with Tintern cheese and a few tomato slices. Into the oven, Gas mark 5 for 30 minutes and it was delicious. Leftover meals are great. I never waste food.



And we went to the allotment quite late to do some watering. We have a permit from our local authority to go there as long as we practice strict social distancing. It’s easy enough as the site is so large. As we left, the lights by the castle came on, it was lovely. We’re so lucky to live here.

    Welsh pizza! (Looks tasty) Maybe not so suprising as I think there’s quite a lot of Italian blood in South Wales. I went to University with a Welsh Italian from Aberystwyth who now lives in Wrexham.

      Yes, loads of people of Italian descent here, including me, through my mother. Family originally from Sicily 😀

        Is Pizza a Scicilian dish, though? 😉
