A tiny sign of coloured lettuce scrawling patterns in the potager and heading to sandwiches and summer salads.
A leggy sign of delicious fish and dill dishes.
A cool sign of cucumbers clambering over the arch in the potager and tumbling into salads and tzartziki dip.
A strong sign of next Autumn and Winter's pumpkin soups, roasts, curried pea and pumpkin puffs, pumpkin scones, bean, roast pumpkin and feta salad and (my favourite comfort food) mashed pumpkin.
A sign of barbecued eggplant, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with a little salt and pepper, moussaka, and dips.
A slow growing sign of a cheerful summer display of petunias.
An orgiastic sign of an overabundance of shield bugs (I wish they would get a room)
A first sign of my favourite tomato, basil, and bocconcini salad, tomatoes eaten raw and cooked in every way we can think of and hopefully lots of sauces and frozen fruit to bring some sunshine to next Winter.
An aromatic sign of next Winter's orange and almond cake and (of course) marmalade.
