Sorrel…

Tiny baby sorrel leaves were subject to my scissors this afternoon. It was cold and damp so I just gave a few of my plants a quick haircut. This was then turned into a pesto (just the leaves, parmesan, olive oil and a bit of garlic). Lovely sauce for pasta with salmon and tomatoes. Great so have something fresh out of the garden.

We’ve had four days of wonderful warm sunny weather but it’s flipped again and it’s now freezing cold. Yesterday (it was 19 degrees!), the onion sets went into their new bed – fingers crossed we get a decent crop this year. ¬†Aiming to get the potato bed weeded and dug over for planting in a couple of weeks. Last night the second polytunnel arrived so maybe by the end of next week it will have joined the first one.
