Fruit of the Garden - July's Harvest

July has come and almost gone so it feels like a good time to post an update on our harvest. It has been a month of many salads with the perfect weather to get us into the mood, strawberries to go with the Wimbledon final and the first of our potato harvest. We also had some stray garlic that had been flattened by something so I dug it up and tried smoking it, as it was all quite small. More on that to come later!

  1. We use Nasturtiums in salads too - a great all round plant :) Thanks for joining in Salad Days this month!

    1. I find them a little peppery for my tastes - but Joe enjoys them :)

    1. Thanks. We had some undersized bulbs with not much chance of further growth, but by processing them all at once we're making good use of them rather than discarding them for being too fiddly :)
