It been a few good years since I participated in Harvest Monday hosted by Daphne and Dandelions,that was when I had an allotment, but lots of things have happened since then that I would like leave in the past and move on.
Now that I have a new home with a new garden (please see here), I am really looking forward to growing my own organic fruit and veg again; and sharing what's happening in the garden with other keen veg growers. Today though I am cheating a little as the bunch of Swiss Red Chard that I am sharing have come from my new neighbours garden; and they were happy for me to have some as much of it was beginning to bolt. Sadly they are moving to Luxembourg for the work, such a shame as I was looking forward to comparing notes and some neighbourly veg growing competition and banter!
I've have a variety of Swiss Chard seedlings in the greenhouse that are beginning to emerge, so am looking forward to planting my own out soon.
Oh yesterday I also went for a forage for wild garlic and came bag with a good bag full. So expect some recipes from me soon, including Wild Garlic Quiche; Wild Garlic Hummus; Wild Garlic Oat Biscuits; along with some new ones. If you have some wild garlic recipe suggestions, please do share. I am always very open to new recipe ideas.
I've given half the bag to my mother who has never had wild garlic. She said she was going to make some Wild Garlic Pakoras! Anyway, please come back later on to see what I made with this Swiss Red Chard and the wild garlic!
