Someone asked me what I was going to sketch today and I said Parsley harvesting. I saw a look of surprise and then they admitted they had never considered it had to be harvested. Certainly over the past few years I have noticed more and more fields of parsley. So very fortunate to catch The Halls harvesting parsley in what were once fields that belonged to my parents farm. I was fortunate to grow up in the farm at the back of the picture Brick Kiln Farm which my grandfather purchased from the writer Adrian Bell. Some specialised machinery in use here. Parsley sauce anyone?
