Taste of Britain

Watch out for the new series of Taste of Britain on BBC 1 in the autumn because we'll be in the Taste of Kent programme. Last week we were filming and fortunately the weather was kind. It was very good to meet Janet Street Porter and Brian Turner.  When Janet is not on Loose Women she's writing columns for the Independent and the Daily Mail. I introduced Janet and Brian to the molluscs and then Brian did some cooking. You'll have to wait for the recipe but I can tell you it was delicious. We caused a bit of a stir at Littlebourne Allotments but peace was restored by the end of the afternoon. Then we had a tremendous thounderstorm that triggered  some vigorous digging activity in the Roman snail pen.

This one has just started making a pit but this one has almost buried himself completely:

I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that they were laying eggs! Now I'm just waiting to see if they hatch.
