So another week and another harvest.
This week I am sharing plums from the garden.
Those of you who came by last week will remember me mentioning that part of our plum tree was damaged in the high winds, taking a load of branches laden with unripe plums with it. I had left the branch on the side hoping the plums still clinging on it would ripen, well they did. These are those plums and they have already been used in baking into Cinnamon Plum Cake, its one I make every year and more than once.I also wanted to show the difference between our plums and the neighbours plums. The large glossy ones belong to my neighbour. Its the first year my neighbours plum tree has produced.
As well as our own plums, we are being gifted by plums from the neighbours tree too, as half the tree is leaning on our side of the garden.
I thought I'd share the flowered artichokes with you too. See how pretty they are, blooming sharp and prickly too!Half way through last week, we also harvested globe courgettes, a variety of beans in all sizes and of course plums.
With the green beans I made Sarah Beatties Peixinhos da horta which translates as 'little fish from the kitchen garden'
I also adapted Sarah Beatties Green Bean Korma recipe to include my homegrown round courgettes and runner beans.
Finally from my husbands greenhouse, a colourful selection of tomatoes. Here's a link to some tomato recipe inspiration.
