Cornish sardines (aka pilchards) from Waitrose (the local supermarket in the village)  £1.89 for six.  - also the samphire from there.

A bit later in the season we'll be getting local samphire from the fish van that visits, but it's too early yet. 

Or we can pick some when we go to the coast (I know a secret spot )

If you spend long enough laying on your tummy on the lawn looking into a pond, you're bound to see something interesting sooner or later .... I snuck indoors to get the camera walking soooooooooo carefully so I didn't make any vibrations, then crawled low on my tummy with the camera - I couldn't believe my luck

An old school friend of my son's is one of the cameramen on Springwatch - he was dead impressed

Hottest day of the year so far 21.4C in the shade earlier on.  No wonder the under gardener is sitting down with a well-deserved beer - he's done getting on for half the digging - extended the veg patch and made a good start on the new bed.  Now the robin is busy picking over the soil - lots of worms in there so he's happy.

Just going to prep some Cornish sardines, samphire, purple sprouting and Rosevaal potatoes for supper ...
