What's seasonal in June?

May was good to us and I think June will be even more so. We are already sampling the first British strawberries, weeks ahead of local strawberries in Montreal. Last weekend also saw our first picnic of the year which included two lovely artichokes. And if the weather continues to comply, we are in for a treat!

My personal objectives for June are to become better acquainted with broad beans and cauliflower. What vegetable do you want to get to know better?

Watts up with that?

Hey, you're back! I was afraid that those weird British veggies had knocked you out for the count.

While Googling for your site I noticed the following: http://www.watts-cooking.co.uk/about_us.asp.

Whaddyasay we sue this so-called "Tanya Watts" for capitalizing on our good (and highly marketable) name?

Dan.

Re: Watts up with that?

Hi Dan!

Bad luck - I own the .ca domain but couldn't get my hands on .co.uk. Maybe someday! Very slowly migrating away from livejournal, but will be some while yet.

Thanks for reading :)
