Perhaps not the MOST impressive haul, but my garden is all of 5 foot square, concrete, with 2-storey high walls on 3 sides, so I consider any produce a success!



I am currently growing peas, beans, courgettes, potatoes, redcurrants, olives, blueberries, redcurrants, strawberries, aubergines, peppers, almonds, figs, tomatoes and LOADS of herbs. Pictured above is what I took out of the garden today and includes


  • one cupful courgettes the size of a finger
  • one cupful peapods
  • a few courgette flowers
  • one cupful of redcurrants, the entire crop from my tiny bush this year
  • fresh bay leaves and wild rosemary from my mum's and nan's gardens
  • caraway, sweet fennel, parsley, coriander, oregano, chocolate mint, sage and lavender from my own garden.

Of course the big question is, what do I cook with it all?
