Grow Your Own!

by Piccadilly HillBilly

Before heading back to London for the week I always stock up from the Veg Garden. We grow a lot of our own veg at home and I urge you to do the same if you have the space. It tastes infinitely better than the packaged stuff you get in Supermarkets and I love the fact you don’t have to pay a penny for it. Plus there is something hugely satisfying about preparing a meal with food grown on your own turf.

Here’s this weeks supplies:

Big bunches of Basil to go with the tomatoes and for making pesto (I will go into more detail on pesto-making in another post)

And I wish I had spotted these babies earlier in time to fill them with Lemony Ricotta and Parmesan….

It always makes leaving the Shire for London a much easier affair knowing that I am taking a little bit of countryside goodness with me.
