Summer is good for…

Growing your own cress for snipping onto those open-faced sandwiches (which are not as nasty as they sound, just openly begging for extras, like cress).

Harvesting herbs from your garden (balcony), a free and priceless touch to any salad worth its name.

Beetroot chocolate cake and pinot noir. Need I say more?

Oh yes, and Bloody Mary continues to be the cocktail for all seasons.
