A record of the changing seasons in a coastal village.
Having returned to live in Walberswick at the end of last year we realised that we would now have the chance to see all the seasons unfold on a daily basis, rather than on the occasions that we visited family. We decided there and then to keep a diary of the "firsts and lasts" of nature, i.e. the first swallow of summer, the first frost and so on. Of course we never actually got round to it then, although we talked about it a lot...

More wild recipies
Following the success with the wild garlic pesto I thought I'd add some to Jo's recipe from the Covent Garden Soup book for nettle soup:
DON'T forget the rubber gloves for picking the nettles!
Keep the gloves on at this stage.
We substituted the garlic with the wild stuff and picked a huge amount of nettles as we didn't have any scales. It was truly delicious.
