Our dinner from the garden

We enjoyed our first meal with home-grown produce this evening! I went out and picked about a quarter of the current pea crop, and got F to help me shell them. Of course he ate a lot of them while he was “helping”, but we still had these left for tea.

My dad had helped me to lift a row of potatoes the other day, and it looks like we’ll have a good sized crop of them as well.

Put them together with a bit of fish, and we had a lovely meal.

I’m looking forward to getting the rest of the crop, and expanding the vegetable garden next year. This year I just planted strawberries, peas, potatoes and onions. However, I’ve got a raspberry bush which should be ready to fruit next autumn, and there’s rhubarb at the bottom of the garden as well. I’d like to have a try at carrots and tomatoes, and I would love an apple tree. Roll on self-sufficiency!

  1. You know, its something I look forward to as well. No better example than the following. I went to visit my sister for a week and it just so happened that her pea pod plant was overflowing so she had to pick a whole big massive colander whilst I was there. They were soooo sweet and immensely tasty. Then I came home and my mum had a bag of store bought pea pods which I was like oohh Ill eat I have a taste for them now and genuinely thought I was eating cardboard.
