M is much neater with his rows than I am. I’m more of a slash and burn gardener than a nurturing type. I apologised to the allotment worms a lot yesterday while we forked, dug, raked, poked and generally turned over their world. Tried not to inflict too much collateral damage. In other news I did loads of cooking - I simmered tattie n leek soup, bubbled dhal, baked aubergine, reduced tomato sauce, browned Ghanaian peanut chicken, soaked chickpeas, roasted beetroot (the last of it!).
