Tomatoes

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

It is a sad day here at Twicipe. The last two nights were the coldest May nights for 15 years. Our tomato plants did not survive the ground frost.
:-(

Luckily it was only the tomatoes that met a sticky end. The potatoes and strawberries are coming on nicely, and our first crop – Yugoslavian Lettuce – will be ready for harvest in a week. Expect plenty of home grown Twicipes.

Tweet Treats

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

@janetravers is currently compiling a recipe book of twitter recipes to raise money for UNICEF — a very worth while cause. To have you recipe considered for Jane’s book add the tag #tweettreat to your twicipes or DM her. Visit the tweet treats blog to find out more. We’re certainly looking forward to the book!

Cocktails on Twitter

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Cocktails are popular Twicipes; they’re shortness, simplicity and few ingredients lend themselves to 140 character recipes. Sharing any recipe is a social activity but cocktails are particularly social as they are often consumed with friends in a relaxed environment.

In contrast my favourite cocktail is a Caparina, enjoyed alone in a sunny garden after a hard days work. My favourite Twitter mixologist is @HackaPhreaka.
