Back to prep school

I helped my boyfriend’s father plant some vegetable seeds in his veggie patch last week. Since then my duty has been to water the patch every morning. And guess what!? Today, after one week of silence, I found some little red beetroot buds poking out of the soil! I’m so happy!!


The excitement reminded me of a time in prep school when our class had to keep a visual diary following the growth of some potatoes we’d planted for a science project… (and when it was over we ate them).


I like the idea of eating flowers. My mum boils and vinaigrettes them. Yum!
