Following our visit to ‘Flavour Fest’ yesterday, we had the crab pate for tea today. It was delicious on toast (home made white bread) topped with slices of organic cucumber (purchased from the Kitchen Garden at Knightshayes).

We ate our first ripe fig today, too. There aren’t many this year that will ripen before the cooler weather – which is strange in view of the long hot spell earlier in the summer. The tree is hampered by a neighbouring evergreen which shades it from mid-afternoon onwards. We all love figs, but there just aren’t enough to go round!
