It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Homegrown & Delicious!

About 4 years ago my parents moved from their 25 acre farm out of Wistow to a lovely home on a big block in Hahndorf.  It's big enough for my Dad to have a large shed to work on his old wooden boats, and for Mum to have a dedicated craft room - along with lots of garden for fruit trees and veggie patches, and a chook house for a regular supply of perfect eggs.

At the moment they have so many different veggies growing in their garden (a bit of sun and lots of rain will do that!) and last Wednesday Mum went out and cut me a handful of fresh asparagus, grabbed a huge egg from the chook house and produced the following lunch for me - garden to plate in under 20 minutes - sublime.

Tender baby asparagus and a double yolker egg, fried lightly in butter, then served on a slice of thick white bread with proper butter and topped with a sprinkling of fresh parsely from the herb garden.  I'm so lucky!
