It’s a typical Saturday ritual: I’m catching up on work.
“Oh no, I couldn’t–it’s too pretty.” (This is a French heirloom pumpkin crossed with a Jarrahdale.)“Do we have the ingredients?”We only needed the white part of the leek.Some fennel …A few white potatoes …African red onions …and some shallots. (Bryon’s shallots have done well this year.)The carrots would be put to use another time. It was easier–and harder–to concentrate with a pot simmering on the stove nearby.
