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:
Being a great enthusiast of all things edible, Rufus came along to help
We picked Carrots, Beetroot, Spinach and Chard…
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….
Even pup found something to chew on
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.
