I have recently left the hustle and bustle of London for the idyll of rural Shropshire.  I am a mother, an artist, a cook – these pages will chronicle my recipes, paintings, and adventures on my farm to anyone who may be interested.  I do not claim to have any bee-keeping or vegetable growing skills, or to be the best preserver or baker, but I will endeavour to learn the ways of the country, fall in line with the rhythms of the seasons and hopefully pass on a few things that I have gleaned along the way.  This will be my link to the rest of the world now that I feel so very far away from it.  I am fondly known as Lard – and this is my story.

    What’s happened to the Lard? No postings for AGES. Has she left Hillpike?

    I happen to know that Lard is occasionally to be found lurking at Hillpike but she now has the small but perfectly formed Harp Lane Deli to contend with…..but Iike you Mistree Chutney I too am bereft when confronted with an existence sans recipes and ruminations. Come on Lard….spice up our lives again pleeeeeez
