Monday 20th March - I am a Peasant

"Do not eat garlic or onions; for their smell will reveal that you are a peasant." - Cervantes (Don Quixote)

Our garlic is doing really well, it obviously thrives during cold spring weather and the fleece has protected the bulbs from the birds. This week I have weeded the bed and covered it with netting rather than the fleece tunnels. I reckon future weeding will be much easier if I can just lift the netting rather than removing the tunnels.

Definition of Peasant:

(noun) a person who owns or rents a small piece of land and grows crops, keeps animals, etc. on it, especially one who has a low income, very little education and a low social position.

It's good to know that I am also a peasant.

Just pondering that 'chives' is quite similar to 'chavs'. Could there be something in this...?

..and let's not even think about 'cottage cheese'...

...or even 'cottage cheese with chives'...

Help! Take me away.........
