As today was a lovely sunny day and mummy was at work we decided it was the perfect day to dig up some of the things we have been growing in the garden.
Some of the stuff has grown really well like the blueberries, strawberries and courgettes. Others haven’t faired so well.
This was the first year I’d attempted parsnips and this is how it turned out.
The girls love digging for the potatoes which is lucky as we’ve had 5 bags so far and the last bag was a big success.
The girls love getting dirty and will love our holiday to Coombe Mill in the new year.
It’s that time of the year went a lot of people grow various things in their gardens.
So far this year we have
As we are planting them in different stages we should have enough of everything to last us well past summer (if we get one)
What other things are you growing?
It seems this year everyone is growing mega courgettes and seem to be struggling with new ideas of what to do with them.
Once you’ve made stuffed courgettes, used them in stir frys and salads what can you do?
Well if need something that is quick and easy and perfect for children try this.
Courgette bake – its very easy and perfect for a quick meal.
Firstly chop up the courgette and pop it in a frying an with a little oil. Fry it off until it starts to soften but try not to burn it. Then pop this into a glass dish and top with a can on chopped tomatoes and a sprinkling of cheese and mix in the glass dish, next add more cheese to the top so it goes crispy. Put it in the oven at 175 for 15-20mins or until the cheese has melted.
We usually have a side of potato wedges…perfect.
