Katherine is a brilliant test case for new dishes, especially those that smack of health, fashionability or hippy weirdiness. Her natural resistance is so high, her prejudices so entrenched, that only the strongest contenders can survive. And so it was with bliss balls, which I'd been bleating to her about for some time.

There is a looming tomato crisis in my garden. At the beginning of the summer growing season, through a combination of busyness and laziness, I repeatedly missed the opportunity to plant our annual crop of tomatoes. Weeks then months passed, with the vegie patch receiving little or no attention but then, as I looked out one summer’s morning, I saw that where there had been a patch of soil in a tastefully rustic raised garden bed, there were now three flourishing tomato plants, already top-heavy with fruit.
