(Mostly) home grown garden salad...

Even though the weather here has been bad for several weeks, our little garden struggles on and we've had a few lovely veggie crops from it, including some very tasty (if not very numerous) new potatoes.

Our most recent harvest was a delicious salad featuring home grown sugar snap peas, yellow cherry tomatoes and nasturtium flowers (plus some salad leaves from the organic veg box)...

Mmm... delicious! :D

We've got a lot of nasturtiums and have quite a few of the little brain-like seed pods on the plants, which we're going to use in a Piccalilli. The recipe we'll use is from the amazing River Cottage Preserves book, which I highly recommend if you're interested in jams, chutneys and pickles! :)

  1. Yum back to you! What a pretty salad. We keep meaning to tempura the courgette flowers but never get round to it. Our courgettes are now marrow-sized cos we can't eat or give them away fast enough! x

  2. Mmm... tempura battered courgette flowers would be lovely! We've got lots of flowers on our squash plants that we could probably do that to but haven't got round to it :)
