Harvest box 2022 #2

Sunflower seeds were donated by a neighbour. This is how to grow them. We don’t know which variety they are, so surprise!!

You are a selection of herbal teas, all good for your tommy.

Melissa and fennel help with digestion and raspberry leaves (in paper bag) are know to be beneficial for women.

Chard is such a versatile vegetable and can be used in many dishes: pizza, stir fry, soup, omelette … You can even add the radish leaves ! perfect for more nutrients.

This time of the year, we have chives everywhere in the garden. Use the buds or flowers from the chives and wild garlic flower to decorate your meal.. Would you rather go for a egg and chives or sprinkle wild garlic flowers on your salad?

The other flowers are not garlicky and can be used in salad or in desserts.

Claytonia can be added to your side salad for some crunchiness.

Last week the cooking group tried the ginger, rhubarb and apple pie and it was approved by all!

Lovage will definitely bring flavours to your dish. It can be turned into a pesto, a soup or just added to your roast.

Remember: When drinking herbal tea or eating edible flowers always check the risks associated with it. Vulnerable people, elderly, children or pregnant women should avoid using some of them. Always wash your ingredients before using.
