Autumnal update from my no dig garden

Whoosh! That was October… didn’t that fly by? And here we are in early November, the first frosts making the garden sparkle in early morning sunlight, turning frost tender plants such as nasturtiums to mush. It has been raining an awful lot too! 

Roast squash salad with paprika tahini dressing

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.

Summer Raspberry and Apple Salad

Sweet, crisp and so fruity, this delicious salad makes use of summery gluts. The raspberry balsamic dressing is delicious poured over mixed leaves and roasted chicories, and is a great way to use less than perfect raspberries.
