This month's box featured a gorgeous product from new business @cultvinegar - they make wonderful unpasturised, live vinegars. We chose the Sake Vinegar to compliment our Wabi Sabi theme.

The consumption of foods and drinks that have undergone fermentation contain benefits to health that stretch beyond food preservation. The transformation of sugars and starches enhances the natural, beneficial bacteria in food. These bacteria, known as probiotics or 'good' bacteria are thought to help a multitude of health issues, specifically digestive health.

Cult Vinegars are brilliant and they have a huge range of different ones. We caught up with the maker Jonathan Brown and you can read our interview here https://bit.ly/2KzkV91

Thursdays can be a hard slog, it's nearly the weekend but still a few days to go! Remember though, give yourself space and time even on your busiest days.

Just remember we don't have to be perfect. Even if we think we're experts at something, it is OK to get things wrong. It is OK for us to have bad days and it is OK for us to sometimes fall.

Seasonal food should be celebrated. May & June offer so much seasonal produce to play with! We are in love Broad Beans this month and we've put together this tasty recipe that's a very simple dinner to make but super tasty! https://bit.ly/2rNURQv

Our box this month featured these gorgeous Wildflower Seeds for Butterflies - and money from them goes to the butterfly conservation. In order to be nourished by nature (an important part of Japanese culture) we need to nourish it back. -/-
Plant seeds, don't mow lawns and take care of animals. -/-

We've been looking at ditching the household plastics - we drink a hell of a lot of milk in this country and it builds up in terms of plastic consumption. I was interested in what Milk & More are doing --> here's some information on how you can reduce plastics by getting a milkman! https://bit.ly/2ICrmL2

Life is not linear, it moves in circles. Look outside the window and watch nature, each season is a stage in the cycle without an end on a path. It simply keeps turning, changing and even when the weather isn't the best, too much rain or too much sun, nature accepts that not everything can be perfect but carries on regardless.

Our lives are the same. We must learn to accept that life is transient and always imperfect, but that is the beauty. Wabi-Sabi is an ancient Japanese philosophy that focuses on this very idea. Rooted in Buddhism, it arose from tea ceremonies in which prized utensils were handmade, irregular and imperfect.
-/-
Wabi-sabi is a wonky home-grown carrot; a crack in a ceramic bowl; a well-thumbed book; falling cherry blossom; a worn wooden hallway and an elbow patch on your favourite jumper. It's an appreciation of all that is simple, modest and imperfect. #maybox #celebratetheeveryday
We've got a pretty big collection of plants and sometimes I struggle to look after them all. Is it just me or do other people struggle to remember watering?
-/-. Now I know we are all in to the digital detoxing, but sometimes Apps can come in really handy. One recent find is the Smart Plant App - it's pretty brilliant.
-/-.
The app will identify your plants and tell you how to care for them. It even makes tailored recommendations and tells you when to do certain tasks like remembering to water them (which is pretty hard when we're all busy!).
-/-.
It has an ask the expert section, a digital garden for you to add all your plants, a pest identification and remedy - that in itself if worth it!

OMG the delivery of this cake was BEYOND. Just beyond. I have intimate (and unwanted) knowledge of all potholes, lumps & bumps between here and Ilam. Not to mention the two cattle grids and hump back bridges 🙈 - MAHOOSIVE thank you to Sue, & her husband at @beechenhill_farm who remained so calm and also to Anders, one of the brides’ brother-in-law who assured me all would be fine. 
Thank the Lord for the kitchen facilities on hand at the venue so that I could set up a Bain Marie and repair transit damages. And to Gabby who brought me a small glass of champagne!!!
Beechenhill Farm is truly one of the most beautiful places with the most accommodating owners. Stunning views and the most gorgeous barn for ceremonies & receptions. Thank you xx

Plastic use in supermarkets has had us thinking of new alternative ways to source our food. I've been researching and trying a few Veg Boxes. Here's the roundup of what i've discovered and some interesting ones for you to try. https://bit.ly/2JNQyv8

Has anyone had a veg box scheme before? How do you find it?
There is real beauty in Dandelions. Beauty in the imperfect nature of how they are made but also their impermanence, they go through so many wonderful cycles. It's a shame that we chop them down and don't take time to look at them and observe how they change.
