Beetroot for breakfast?

summerfruitWe are running out of ideas for beetroot and runner beans. Not necessarily together!
Beetroot cake not at all a success but beetroot and chocolate brownies were delicious.  Our allotment is at full tilt on chard, beans, beetroot and last of the sweet peas.
Much easier to find uses for gorgeous gooseberries and beautiful blackcurrants, yum.


Summer evening

2014-06-06 19.33.15What a beautiful evening. The garden looking at its best with masses of sweet peas and a chilled bottle of Grillo from Sicily, what could be better.


Beech Hedges & Beetroot

beecharchWalkers arriving today for two stages of the Ridgeway National Trail, thank goodness for the rain so no need to go to the allotment to water the bounty!

No water on our allotment so that means carting big jerry cans down with precious water when it is dry.  Already captured some gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and beetroot.

Need ideas for how to use beetroot for breakfast? Any takers???

Matthew has been busy cutting the hedges, see photo of beech arch looking very smart and yew hedge finally recovering from last year’s severe trim.  Sweet peas in full glory, such a gorgeous smell.

Now baking….. oh and beds.
