Weekend menu – 15 & 16 March 2019

She’s back! Delia the duck was spotted wandering along our wall looking somewhat displeased as her regular nesting site on top of the shed had been stripped bare of all foliage due to our neighbours refurbishing their shop. She has however built a nest in one of the raised beds and we have screened it off with a few pot plants so she should be fine and we await the arrival of the ducklings in due course.
