THIS TIME 12 MONTHS AGO, we were weeks away from heading into isolation. It’s hard to believe that almost a year has passed, and when I look back at my editor’s letter for the March issue in 2020, I wonder at my naivety. I remember thinking it would probably be two weeks of working from home and then well, we all know what then.

I was flicking through my much-anticipated February 2021 issue just as I received a message from my sister, asking for recipe suggestions for the 1.5 kilograms of home-grown cherry tomatoes she had just picked. I sent her the recipe for the end-of-summer tomato & basil spaghetti, which she made! I picked up my stash of tomatoes a couple of days later and made the dish – totally delicious, especially with home-grown tomatoes. I’ve been a big fan of delicious. since day one, all those years ago, and have never missed an issue. Dianne Carpenter ED’S NOTE: Congratulations, Dianne!
