Harvest Monday: More herbs

Harvest has been rather sparse thus far, still just herbs. But I’m very pleased with it, being able to pop outside with herb scissors whenever I’m cooking is so satisfying. I keep on forgetting to photograph my harvest though. Will you believe me if I tell you I’ve had multiple bunches of flat parsley and a couple of cups of fresh mint to use for tea even though I have no actual evidence? I’m still learning about Instagram and Twitter and how to store images, so much has changed since I last blogged on a regular basis. But I’m trying to post everything that I harvest, as I’d really like to show that you can make a real difference to your cooking with your own produce no matter how small your garden is. So my haul this week is another relatively measly ยฃ1.70 in savings but an amazing boost in general happiness and wellbeing. Eating your own home-grown produce is life-affirming!

We farm a three acre smallholding in Hampshire, England, having fled London in pursuit of the good life for our little family. We mess about with an assorted menagerie and try to be as self-sufficient as possible in meat and fruit and vegetables whilst enjoying our plot and an outdoors lifestyle with our son. I am the luckiest person that I know.
