From The Garden

We pulled up 15lb 3oz of carrots last week. We didn’t thin them out, I was sure they’d be wrapped around each other but they were perfect! They’ve been washed, chopped, blanched and frozen, ready for all the lovely stews we’ll be eating during the cold weather.

Carrots

There’s still lots of tomatoes and chillies in the greenhouses, they’re not ripening now so we’ve been picking them and hoping they’ll ripen in the house – so far, so good. The girls are still laying well, they give us lovely large eggs with orange yolks.

Eggs, toms, chillies

The sprouts are doing well, we should have a good crop for Christmas. We send the kids (now aged 23 and 22) down the garden on Christmas morning to pick them for dinner, they used to love doing this. But nowadays they complain, I tell them they have to go because It’s Tradition 😀

    I’ve made a few different soups but never carrot and coriander! I’ll give it a go, thanks.
