The high point of my year

July 4, 2011

After a week in Cornwall, back in Wales after a week to my favourite moment of the year: the first pod of garden peas from the Griffin’s garden. No taste is ever sweeter, no moment ever more satisfying that standing amongst the rows of Pisum Sativum and running ones finger down along the opened pod and scooping half a dozen fat, little peas into one’s mouth. Really, they should be going to the kitchen, but they won’t miss a few pods.

There are so many peas and broad beans, we are sending the surplus down to The Gurnard’s this afternoon. Along with a box of blackcurrants and some garlic, a small fraction of the 300 heads that sit drying in the barn.

Joe’s garden is truly at its very best at the moment. His tour and barbecue this Friday is fully subscribed, but do let us know by email to if you are interested in joining his 22 September tour, the last of the season.
