How sad.  He always seemed such a lovely man, always smiling.  R.I.P indeed.

I have my suspicions about these weeds, I suspect they may contain illegal substances. This could explain why levi hasn't remembered to tell us all not to forget to change the clocks tonight....

This morning the fruttivendolo van had a basket full of what I would describe as weeds, which were offered to me in place of broccoli, which she didn't have. I asked what it was and was told "verdure" , that it was very good, grown on the hillside, no chemicals, lots of vitamins. So I thought I'd try some. When it came to cleaning them there was a real mixture of things like dandelions, some hairy stuff, some pale green round leaves. Basically what I'd think of as weeds. Anyway I cooked it as instructed and then ate with salt, olive oil and a little lemon juice. Not a lot of flavour but not unpleasant.

It strikes me that this is really 'spring greens' as they were before the cabbage like stuff was grown commercially.

Asparagus season soon😉
