Friends, 1st August @boroughmarket is holding a special Voices At The Table event in support of Trader Support Fund - to help them recover after the horrid event that we all know about. There will be discussions (Claudia Roden will be there!!), music, etc. @rocketandsquash will be there and so will I, among other great speakers, musicians and actors. (but....Claudia Roden!) It's only 15 quid, please come! Tickets on @boroughmarket #voicesatthetable

When my son goes to stay at my parents in the summer, the first thing he does in the morning with my mum is to hit the cucumber vines. She taught him how to scrape off the prickles with the hand. Then crunch there and then, they feel warm, not watery at all, smell amazing. I managed to grow some here from seeds my mum brought from home. On my way home and cannot wait to show them to Sash! #plot10b

Did a shoot for @deliciousmag with @elenaheatherwick and @ellatarn today.

Some of my bounty here - purslane, borage, lovage, chard and siamese twin pattypant squashes. Making my gran's courgette and potato stew thing with the pattypants tonight.
