Never mind. I'm still amused by my auto-correct generated "Sussex thug".

See what I did there? Lowering myself to your level again. It must be catching.

Feeling slightly guilty about bringing this back to the topic, but picked our first crop of the year at the weekend: Rhubarb Timperley Early (see http://www.offalygoodlife.blogspot.ie/). This was un-forced - we're forcing one of our older (inherited) crowns (presuming Victoria or similar), but they're probably still at least a couple of weeks away from being ready.

I guess I'd be more of a blow-in than a Biffo, but delighted to think I'm being accepted at last...

I love your blog, OffalyGoodLife - well done. I moved my rhubarb last autumn as it was only in a temporary place, so I won't be expecting a crop at all, this year.
I did eat kale and baby carrots (the latter just lifted, the last of last year's planting - lazy me!) for dinner yesterday. Very good they were, too, with sausages and onion gravy. The garlic is finished now, but there are still a couple of meals worth of runner beans in the fridge and a few portions of ratatouille. After that comes the"hungry gap".
