**Please insert here my usual array of excuses for utterly abandoning my garden/food blog** There, that’s better.  Even though I haven’t been talking about it, we’re still cooking of course.  Twitter has been my medium of choice lately, being both fast and succinct, so all the pics are winding up there.  There’s been turtles and […]
