the kitchen, the garden

strawberries

scones with jam, coconut cream and strawberries

vegan fruit flapjacks and spelt soda bread

calendula for salves

poppies

comfrey for massage oil

chard

onions and cabbage

captain and spartacus

Now that school is finished we have had a few days of setting the house straight(er) and getting back into the kitchen and garden properly.

In the kitchen we have made bread and biscuits, fish cakes and nut cutlets, elderflower cordial and lots of meals.
In the garden there are: cabbages, cauliflower, salads, chard, onions and scallions, garlic, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, courgette, lots of herbs of all sorts, peas, beans, strawberries, gooseberries, currants, rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries, potatoes and lots of wild flowers.

It feels so good and nourishing to be able to provide for ourselves in this way. Good, happy food.
