Floods were widespread in our neighbours' paddocks at the weekend as Pipers River broke its banks. The normally lush green grassy valley became criss-crossed with rivulets and tributaries and roads turned into rivers as we drove around the region collecting fresh produce. At one stage not even the windscreen wipers could keep up with the torrential downpour. We managed to get everything home in time to pack and after such a grey day everything edible seemed neon by comparison, including Bron's still-warm muffins (a recipe from this month's Country Style) and Masako's beautifully drawn recipe for Roast Swedes & Parmesan Chips, which you'll find slipped inside this week's hilbarn boxes.
