So many good things are in season at the moment-summer really is the season of colourful plenty.
Delivered vegetable boxes are colourful and full of things that challenge my culinary skills, (yes, that still includes beetroot…)
My window boxes are cheery, and garden growings include an abundance of chilli this year. My teeny tiny potted garden is happy to grow chilli, and I’m happy that it’s happy to do that! The rosemary is also happy, which really does make a difference to a pan of roasting potatoes. (Also makes a well scented haven for any critters that decide to take up residence.)
Tomatoes, look I still get ambitious but they really don’t work for me in pots. Needs a whole lot more sun than I can offer them and when they finally do decide to give it a crack, some overly confident grub usually marches in at the crucial moment.
Some other seasonal goodies to look out for at this time
* plums, peaches, passionfruit
* broccoli, basil, beans
*potatoes, peas and onions
Where ever you are, what are you enjoying this season?
