Things are on the move again and making a big step in a positive direction, all of which I shall be up-dated anyone who is still out there on soon but in the mean time a nice productive day has been had…
Harvest wild garlic/ramsons and make pesto ~ done
Harvest rhubarb ~ done
Harvest nettles for dinner ~ done and almost cooked
Plant out comfy ~ done
Plant out lettuces and salad plugs ~ done
Sow next succession on lettuces seeds ~ done
Prep and start off rhubarb cordial ~ done (I’m hoping this time it has been wet enough as last year when I tried this it had been to dry and it didn’t work very well)
Use rhubarb leaves to make Brassica spray (against cabbage white fly) ~ done
Wild Garlic Pesto
I loosely basic it on this recipe but adapted it to suit what was in the cupboard.
Wash and sort a carrier bag of ramson leaves, picking off the older stems. Roughly chop a small onion and add it to a blender along with a few Brazil nuts and a handful of hazel nuts, blend whilst adding the leaves, olive oil ( I used a sherry glass full as I don’t really like the taste), grated cheese (cheddar) and half a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of sugar. Blend until smooth and serve.
