I have to admit that harvest hasn’t really been my focus this week. This is largely because it was my daughter’s 5th birthday on Wednesday and on Saturday we had a party for her at our house. What this meant was that I felt obliged to actually clean and tidy the house – which constitutes a major time investment as my day to day standards are frankly not as high as they should be…..
Anyway I did manage a small harvest on Wednesday to prepare her requested birthday dinner – a Vietnamese style noodle soup. As a result this weeks harvest is heavy on the aromatics and herbs: Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime leaves, Vietnamese mint, Coriander, Spring Onions, Mint & Chillies. I really enjoy herby aromatic soups so I was more than happy to devote a bit of time to making it.
For other Monday Harvests visit Daphne’s Dandelions.
