I’m Emma and this is my documentation of moving to the semi-country and attempting to grow, swap or find as much of my own fruit/veg/produce as possible.
I envisage it to be a bit like the much loved Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden Companion. Look up the ingredient you have on hand in the garden and then find my suggestion of a recipe you can cook with it.
I love this stuff. This stuff makes me happy. But alas I am no expert, so I’ll also tell you about both my growing and cooking mistakes along the way so we can all have a good laugh together.
Generally you will find vegetarian recipes here as I aint growing much meat you see (not enough land – yet!). But I’m not strictly vegetarian so every now and again you’ll find some meaty recipes too.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it and please comment or get in touch! I would love to hear your growing and swapping tips, along with any fab recipes you have to share.
