Ok, so it’s not the Sistine Chapel, but there is a perfection in producing simple food from good ingredients.
I didn’t bake the bread, but I did make the marmalade from grapefruit grown in my backyard. I made the coffee; and now that I’ve learned to drive our expresso machine – and fluff the milk – it’s just like a bought one!
Last spring we planted our first proper vege garden. All summer and well into autumn we harvested tomatoes, peppers, herbs, courgettes, radishes, beetroot and a few others bits and pieces. Every perfect red tomato, each sprig of thyme or bunch of spring onions was a masterpiece; grown in soil we’d prepared, fed with compost we’d made, watered with rainwater from our roof, and ultimately eaten a few metres from where it was picked. Perfection!
