And suddenly it's all over
I've been cooking lots recently, experimenting with mainly veggie dishes. Above there is a yummy roast tomato pasta containing our first crop of peas and broad beans, chickpea burgers (I think they were a Bill Granger recipe which I can't find online) and a vegetable ragu from Jamie Oliver . All totally delicious. We aren't vegetarian but probably about 40% of our meals are. I do like to experiment, especially now that our peas and broad beans are ready.
I got a lovely surprise a few days ago.... a beautiful bunch of flowers from D. courtesy of a lovely lady called Meryl at Nodding Violets florist in Halifax. She grows a lot of the flowers in her own garden and they are stunning. Still going strong a full week later. They have brought be so much pleasure in this generally rainy week!
The first of our fruits are now ready for harvest - we have had strawberries, cherries and blackcurrants, with many more to follow. I need to get my jam-making act on!
I think it's getting pretty common to have lockdown fever, and I've been feeling it this week. I had a sudden realisation that May was 2 months ago, I don't even know how that happened. The weather has been a challenge at times this week, but the reservoirs are looking full again and the garden is happy. And suddenly term is over and the summer break has started! Is anyone else feeling like they lost a whole chunk of time?
