Email of the morning arrives from Nigel Hadden-Paton at Truffles UK, who has just had a good day out in Wiltshire:
“We sat at a table in the garden and brushed our spoils clean, then weighed them. Over 4 kilos of top quality [summer] truffle and a further 2.5 kilos of damaged or maggotted truffle – to be used for inoculum. Not a bad day at the office!”
In 40 minutes. With time to take some excellent pictures. I feel a bout of Home Thoughts From Abroad coming on.
