Monty Don and the Naughty Words...

After reading the Grauniad interview with Monty Don the Sock has had to change his moniker to His Sustainably Sourced-Locally Jerkinnness as it seems dear Monty is falling off the organic bandwagon. Unfortunately the Bedsock has put the kybosh on further jokes about the article as he regards HSSLJ as a kindly uncle figure and won't hear a word said against him. This translates as him telling the Sock "Say anything nasty about that nice Monty Don and I won't cook you dinner!"

It did strike the Sock though that either the stroke had caused a mini Tourette's syndrome in the Don or that he hoped the bad language would make him more accessible!

I agree with him. I've been thinking along the same lines myself for some months. I have seen my food bill go up hugely over the past few months, and am very grateful that I have my veg plot.

As he says, even a window box makes a difference. Grow a few herbs and add them to cheaper foods and you can make a huge difference to the taste. If I were Monty, I too would be swearing, to make people sit up and listen. There is warning of a huge recession on the way. Forewarned is forearmed, and you wanted a change of plants anyway Arabella!

I'm with the Bedsock on this one.
Say anything horrible and not only will you have to have fish fingers for your evening meal, but I will send you hate mail.
Can you really face that, Sock, in your current weakened state???

Hi anonymous

Hate mail isn't funny and if you don't like what is said about Monty Don or anyone else on this blog you don't have to read it. In fact just don't read it.

Sorry! I must have forgotten which blog I was on!

So, is the bedsock going to take up veg-growing then and eat his own words?

Arabella Sock said...

I think the Bedsock would love to give up "work" and have a vegetable garden so he could cook all his own homegrown stuff. As it is he doesn't have time and his main love is cooking - in fact saying he wouldn't cook me dinner is a totally empty threat as he would deprive himself of the joy of being in the kitchen using every single saucepan and utensil.

Mine is doing that right now. I make him clear up. It puts my blood pressure up too much if I go into the kitchen after he has cooked. He makes me pull and clean all the veg first though. I feel I ought to be tugging my forelock as I deliver the day's veg order to the cook at the Big House.

He used the F word. Oh dear, what is the world coming too? I have to lie down now. Next thing we know even brother Buckland, he of the ethical thingy, takes up swearing in public.
