There are still plenty of carrots in the ground. At the moment I am just pulling these as needed. They are all sorts of shapes and sizes, no carrot fly thanks to the enviromesh, and they certainly are full of flavour. I am sure
it is not wishful thinking that home grown carrots taste better than those from the supermarket!
This week's lot were used in a slow cooked lamb curry, added just half an hour before the end of the cooking time to ensure they retained a little texture
and a good orange colour.
And that, with the addition of a lettuce which I forgot to photograph, three more strands of saffron and some sage, was that!
Luckily we have also been able to eat from our stores: potatoes, onions, shallots, cherry
tomatoes in oil, piccallili, dill pickled cucumbers, tomato-based cooking sauces, french beans, runner beans, cauliflower, apples and pears, as well as mixed tomato chutney and bramble jelly. All good!
