Our first home grown meal !!!
This evening we enjoyed the first salad from our own home grown vegetables! The kids were so excited, but not as excited as Steve! Sam and Jude both cut a broccoli plant for dinner, and Luke helped me cut two lettuces, one lollo rosso red one, and one leafy green one, then I cut some nasturtium leaves and flowers to go with it. We had lasagne with it. I never realised veggies cut and eaten straight away tasted so much better than the stuff thats been hauled across the ocean from Kenya and then sat in the Tesco storehouse for weeks before being sold at the last possible moment before the thing goes moldy. We eat all the veg raw, as its best that way. The broccoli was out of this world! Even the stems were nice to eat and the kids cut them into sticks and eat them. You cant do that with shop bought ones as they are too tough and stringy. We were all so excited about reaping the first meal from all our hard work that we had to take photos and blog about it!
