How did it get to be Monday again? The weeks seem to be flying by at the moment and somehow it’s been two weeks since I last posted. At least that means I have some harvests to post about which is nice. It would be even nicer if I had some photos to go along with my words, but I only have a few which means you’ll just have to imagine what my first cucumber looked like. For the record it tasted rather good!
You’ll also have to visualise the blueberries I sneakily ate while pretending that I couldn’t find any whenever the kids asked. (In my defence they could have looked themselves rather than trying to get me to do the work for them…..).
The parsley I failed to photograph was enjoyed in Pasta Puttanesca just this evening and the mint was used in lots of salads as well as in tea. In fact any number of herbs and salad leaves were eaten over the past fortnight, and none of them managed to trouble the camera lens.
There was one thing which I did manage to capture though – the first of this years beans. In this handful (the first of a few I’ve picked over the last few days) are Majestic Butter and Kentucky Wonder (I think that’s what they are – thankyou to Nina for the seed and hopefully the confirmation that they are indeed Kentucky Wonder).
It’s clear from this post what my New Years Resolution needs to be – TAKE MORE PHOTOS. Hopefully I will and next week you will actually be able to see what I’m posting about. In the meantime head over to Daphne’s to find some posts which actually feature pictures of produce. Before you go though I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.
