So Monday night is training night for me which means that A. has a standard meal of rice, tuna/salmon and salad for her and the kids (and me latter on).
Of late we have been lucky that we can use the garden for most of our salad items.
A quick five minute run around netted the salad below. A little extra virgin olive oil from a work mate who’s brother presses his own olives. Some vinegar and you have a nice meal.
So what did we have?
- Baby Cos leaves
- Nasturtium leaves
- Nasturtium flowers
- Celery leaves
- Some strange Italian lettuce
- A little bit of rocket
- Spinach leaves
- Heritage tomato’s
As I said not bad for 5 minutes work and pretty damn tasty. You do not need a huge garden to get this kind of harvest. A few pots to grow your herbs and salad vegetables. If you get nothing more than fresh herbs and salad a couple of times a week from this that will make a huge difference to your health, budget and the one of the billion tiny acts that will help the world.
And of all these things which is my favourite? The nasturtium flowers of course. Colour, taste, health and beauty what more can you ask for in food.
