The Tiniest Barn Raising

Every allotment needs a shed.  

Somewhere to hang your hat.  Somewhere to keep your welly boots.  And vitally somewhere to make that well earned cuppa while gazing out over your little patch of proud greenness, as the warmth makes your nose glow.
And so our city-dwellers version of a tiny barn raising was to begin. 
Now, barn raisings depend in great part upon team work, fine weather and good cheer. But most importantly, a steady supply of good food! 
So Bank Holiday weekend dawns sunshiny and we head to Morrisons.
"Strawberries please!"
And...
"Blueberries, they're my favourite."
As
Happily, both go into the trolley. 
Vibrant displays of fresh greens, glossy amethyst purples and the sheen of pearlescent white - and savouring this gentle pace, we wander companionably together, pondering delicious pairings and fun menu possibilities...
We find fresh fish...
And a helpful fishmonger! 
...we find perfect barn raising fodder to eat, during the sunshine filled rests, filling tummies, as instructions are read and re-read.
...the simple and most right food...
An incredible Cornish Pasty! (£1.70 for 2)
...and look what it fuelled!
...and to celebrate BBQ's of expertly prepared sardines (by our lovely Morrisons fishmonger) with heat blistered tomatoes on the vine (3 packs for £1.50) and the simple sweet nuttiness of New Jersey potatoes for only £1!
Life's very best moments, flavours and delights are often not those that cost us dear.  They are found amongst good company, in sharing fresh wholesome food and in those little triumphs we accomplish along our way.
We would like to thank Morrisons for their help in making our tiny barn raising our tiny triumph! A delight to shop for, at excellent value and most crucially for us...simply delicious!
