November has been a month of contrasts so far: sparkling frosts, glorious sunrises and rather a lot of rain. It has been pouring down here all day.
Brussels Sprouts are one of my most favourite vegetables. It is a happy day when the first sprouts are ready to pick, I even like to eat them for breakfast! Every year I grow several varieties to extend the sprout harvesting season – but sadly this year, it hasn’t gone according to plan.
A nourishing, flavourful salad, autumn on a plate! I used Uchiki Kuri squash for this – easy to grow, sweet, nutty and you can eat the skin – but any firm fleshed squash or pumpkin is fine.
October is such a busy time in my garden – harvesting, clearing, sowing, planting and getting everything ready for the winter months. Gardening plans have been hindered however by so much rain!
An easy to make delicious, seasonal, healthy, economical and very, very green hummus with a moreish crispy kale topping.
