Mary is a gardener, too. A real gardener -- a professional gardener. Because she sells what she grows. She's a fixture at our Farmer's Market and besides her wonderful produce, she always has great baked goods for sale and craft items as well. Mary is one very busy lady.
Our Farmer's Market doesn't start until Saturday . . . but today Mary called and said she had something for me and she would bring it by.
And what do two gardeners do when they're not in the garden? They have tea!
It was an impromptu tea, fixed after Mary's call for when she said she'd be by, I put the kettle on, put a cloth on the tray, picked up the box of "biscuits" I just bought and headed for the porch.
The "biscuits" are English and I picked them up last week in the city. Picadilly biscuits. From Fortnam and Mason!
A selection of three kinds. Real English biscuits. Perfect with the pot of P G Tipps tea that I brewed.
We sipped and munched -- but not for long for Mary is a busy lady and she had other things to do.
And what she had for me?
Fresh spinach and green onions! She told me she had picked too much and thought that I could use it. Indeed, I can. A spinach quiche for dinner tomorrow night. The green onions will be good eaten with a slice of good bread slathered in butter for lunch with the last of the lemon chicken orzo soup.
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my tea with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage and Marty at A Stroll Thru Life
for Tabletop Tuesday.
