Spring has Sprung!
Woohoo! Finally Spring is here! Daffodils and narcissi are in full bloom, violets and crocuses are popping up, and pink blossom is adding a welcome burst of colour everywhere. 😀
The allotment has had a ‘bit’ of attention and we’ve even managed to plant several things outside already! Hooray! Early and second early potatoes have been in a while, Jerusalem artichokes, spinach beet, carrots, spring onions, peas, rocket and sorrel too! The chard from last year is still producing colourful leaves and we’ve just picked our first crop of rhubarb! 🙂 Indoors we’ve started aubergines, marrows, red cabbage and parsnips. In the mini greenhouse we have tomatoes, mange tout, cauliflower and broad beans. Still loads to do though and lots more to be planted before next week! At least the warmer weather has started and it’s much easier to get on with work! Oh and that rhubarb! We made a rhubarb and apple crumble and it was SO good! Don’t you just love home grown produce!? 😀
No new recipe today, but a few past posts to have a look at again! Let’s start with houmous as it’s definitely time to make a load and eat it with everything! How about these nut cutlets which are still one of my favourite recipes. Chickpeas are something we eat a lot of as they’re so tasty, packed with protein and quick and easy to prepare – these chickpea wraps are a great go to meal. With picnic weather almost here how about these lovely little spinach pies? or a quick and easy rice salad for when you’re picnicking in the garden! Oh, we couldn’t forget something sweet! Let’s finish with these gorgeous chocolate caramel slices! YumYum!
