Spring has Sprung
Wake Up! say the bees to my garden! Eat me, say those delicious alpine strawberries, (you know the ones, they’re the size of your fingernails but pack as much strawberry punch as you’d get in the larger berries.)
My chillies beg me to be stir fried and meanwhile, there are teeny-tiny, Tom Thumb tomatoes slowly making an appearance, alongside the onion sprouts & flowers coming into bloom.
Yes, as I write this it’s 21C outside (around 68F) and with it signals the end of winter, begone the cold!
I can already hear the folks exclaiming in the Northern Hemisphere, but truly with Autumn/Fall comes the beautiful medley of autumnal colours that Mother Nature loves to show off to us all.
Warmer days also signal lighter foods. Time to celebrate and indulge in these fresh vibrant greens in the shops & plethora of jewelled fishes from the fishmongers.
Sadly not all these lovelies are home grown, but I can guarantee they still have a special place in my heart and my tummy. Time for some Spring Feasting, salads & Seafood.
