Oooh, just tried out Snowpack for the first time. Setup a new project in a single line and HMR is blazing fast! That's a really nice development experience.

Just had the most home-grown soup ever. Leeks, potato, onion, garlic. All from the allotment. Something very satisfying about the time and work spent on a good simple meal.
