    2. There you go! I agree a BLT is so delish! But it's something about when the tomato juice and mayo mixes that you just want to drink it. HaHa!

  3. Well done; somehow, we missed out on the veg this year. Apart from rhubarb - does that count?

    1. Yum. We call coriander "cilantro". It does taste wonderful on tomatoes!
      No lavender yet...but things take over 2 weeks to arrive from your side of the world!
      I'll let you know! :)

      I can't wait for this first one. The Mister has already requested it on a grilled burger. Yum.

    Hope the difficulties with Harry are not the start of a trend. Hang in there!

    1. Yes! By the weekend I bet!
      Thanks for those good wishes about Harry. Had a rough day with him
      this week....very aggressive and angry and I was poor one he was after
      for whatever reason. He's been fine ever since, though.
