Not-so-slim pickings

Things are looking particularly rosy in our veggie patch at the moment. The tomatoes are ready and ripe for the picking!

We’ve had a very productive season with last year’s left over tomatoes sprouting themselves! Nature has a wonderful way of rejuvenating itself that I think even Lana Del Ray would appreciate!

With these plentiful pickings, our family and friends love us! And with this beautiful seasonal produce, soon I’ll be sourcing tomato passata recipes in readiness for winter stews and pasta dishes to enjoy these blushing beauties year-round.

Here’s this week’s haul.

Fruitiful Breakfast

We’re off to a good start this morning with a bowl of fresh in-season fruit. And the anti-oxidant packed mulberries are very low carbon miles because they’re straight from our tree!

I’m loving the watermelon and mango that’s adorning the shelves of the local grocer too. Their flavours are so intense, making them a joy to eat!

And the best thing about eating seasonal produce is that we can look after our health. The different nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are delivered in the produce of the season keep us well nurtured for the conditions at hand.

Bon appetit!
