The best kind of mail

is a present form a friend! Thank you lovely Estelle for all these French delights. I particularly love the chicken cereal bowls. You can't see them here but there is also a lovely set of tea spoons that spell out tea in French. I don't know about you, but to me everything looks better in French  :*)


Oh and while we are at it, here's a few pics of Jerry trying out the "latest"Austrian technology...his scythe. It's a bit tricky on a hill, but we'll get the hang of it. It is certainly a lot lighter than the strimmer / whipper snipper.
And the obligatory "food porn" pics: bread, home grown tomatoes, basil and garlic for roasting, a recent harvest basket (potato, aubergine, courgette), and a batch of chutney (courgette and aubergine) ready to cook

Hi Margo and Jerry. Is the scyth hard work? Or is it not too bad if you do a bit for a short time?

Wow your produce looks very tasty. I roasted some home grown cherry tomatoes, oregano, and garlic, with local organic onions. Delicious! So yours will be incredible! Love your relish.

I agree French words looks so exotic. Have never used a scythe does it cut good like a whipper snipper?
Love fresh baked bread actually mine is in the oven as I type.

Hello Margo & Jerry,

We bought an Austrian scythe earlier this year. It's very cathartic to use. Whilst I'm not very proficient with it, the rhythm of it along with the peace and quiet is very enjoyable.

Regards, Gary
