Counting on …day 117 

9th March 2022

Throughout the year there are seasonal vegetables that suddenly pop up – either in the garden or in the shops. Things that give a little lift and excitement to the everyday. This week it was the first wild garlic leaves which if you love in rural areas you can pick fresh from hedgerows. Wild garlic is also known as ransom. If you plant them in your garden bear in mind that they spread and grow rapidly 

Count Down

 Action 31: Avoiding out of season fruit is one way of keeping our carbon footprint in check. But you can preserve fruits while they are in season to eat later. Bottle peaches to eat at Christmas. Make blackberry and apple jelly to go on crumpets. Preserve apricots in Marsala – great with ice cream. Transform plums into a spicy chutney.
