The garden has been idyllic this week so my five this week is produce that we are enjoying. I was inspired by many posts this week with some rather yummy strawberry recipes therefore my number one is strawberries:
I only have about 12 plants but they are producing a lot of strawberries and the sun this week is ripening them very quickly. We have been enjoying iced strawberry mint tea sitting in the sun. So my number two is mint such a wonderful combination.
Three is lettuce that we are eating on a daily basis, so much better than shop bought. There is a real sense of pride in enjoying the fruits of your labour.
We have grown two varieties this year both with quite different taste and texture. Lolo rosso and little gem, definitely on the list to do again.
Number four is spring onions the another beautiful combination with the salad leaves for a side dish with almost anything.
Finally peas, they are not quite ready to harvest but are coming along nicely and are a wonderful, versatile addition to the garden.
I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My home for the weekly Five on Friday fun. What have you got growing in your garden?
