Welcome to my blog

I was born in Guernsey (but now live in Brittany) and our main industry was growing tomatoes although that industry has now virtually disappeared. Growing tomatoes to a Guernseyman is like wine to a Frenchman, it's in our blood! I do not profess to be an expert, but I have picked up a few tips and techniques which work for me.

Chocolate dipped strawberries

Now is the the time to start enjoying all the hard work in the garden by harvesting your crops, so with a spell of hot weather last weekend the outdoor strawberries have gone mad, so as well as Mrs  TK having to start making some tasty strawberry jam, she has also been dipping them in melted chocolate as we have friends around for dinner tomorrow night.

We are also harvesting radish, lettuce, asparagus, cucumbers, courgettes  and of course a great supply of fresh herbs. The problem is that it is all or nothing when you grow your own food, so you have to be resourceful and come up with novel and tasty ways to use all this lovely fresh produce. I do leave all that to Mrs TK who is a bit of a Galloping Gourmet.
