A couple of evenings ago, I made the mosaic for the centre of the potager. I have been planning this in my head for weeks. As you know I love the garden so
'HD' in a heart seemed apt.
Every thing in the potager has grown. I did some weeding last night too and it was lovely and fragrant communing with the herbs at close quarters.

For the record:
Today we had visitors and served zucchini slice, pumpkin and risoni salad and a small green salad. Strawberries in balsamic vinegar and ice-cream was desert. Oh, I forgot there was home made hummus and broad bean dip (from the freezer).
Ingredients produced on the property included:
- 6 small green beans (tokens really, but irresistible)
- 4 small zuchinni
- 1 red onion
- tender red and green oak lettuce leaves
- some tiny radishes to be eaten tops and all
- broad beans
- eggs (of course)
This is the first real meal of the Summer with so many home grown ingredients.
The cook outdid herself and it was delicious.
