Grow your own dinner

Well, we’ve had grow your own stew and we have two stewpacks in the freezer now.
We harvested our sprouts and a friend gave us some runner beans so they too have been frozen down.
But finally I have tomatoes, and today had a tomato pasta, my first for about a month, using our own toms and onion. It was delicious!
There are loads more in the greenhouse and they are just beginning to turn.
I’m looking forward to chilis, spaghetti bolognese and lasagnes all made with our own tomatoes and onions. They taste so different.
They’ve been slow in coming, but are finally making the grade. Still no runner beans of our own though which is a disappointment.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is all very exciting. And to your point, so much tastier than store bought.

  2. I had a really nice vegetable garden till the groundhog dug its way in and ate everything.

    I’m glad you are getting the tomatoes finally. We have a big container in the refrigerator and at least double that still in the garden… Seems everyone put in a COVID garden and we can’t give away our squash or tomatoes! The second planting of radishes and arugula is coming along so we should have a harvest by the middle of September!!
