So, you know, sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and of gardening, but not thankfully in the way of harvesting or eating this time 🙂
A little photo journey of some of the things that have been happening at Chez Bee during my blogging absence
:: I’ve been harvesting veg like crazy. The beans are coming almost too fast to eat. The zucchinis were amazing until Mr Bee, um, that’s a story for another post.
:: Our neighbours went to Kangaroo Island (lucky things!) and brought back some very special Ligurian Honey. Have you heard about it? They are the only remaining pure strain of these originally Italian bees. They are renowned for their lack of aggression and are sought after around the world. Cool hey? I’ve wanted to try some for ages and now that I have three little jars it seems too special to eat. Crazy!
:: To use up our zucchini hauls we have been trying all sorts of dishes. The favourite so far is Chocolate Zucchini cake. It’s yummy, rich, moist and not at all zucchini-y. The recipe comes from who else, but the famous food blogger Chocolate and Zucchini
:: We had self-sown potatoes coming up EVERYWHERE in spring. I guess they originated from our compost? I pulled most of them out because there wasn’t space amongst the various other vegie goodness growing in the garden. But I left a few and harvested the first plant last week. 300 g of what look like Désirée potatoes. Not bad for a plant that wasn’t watered at all and had to compete with a massive zucchini plant. We’ll be eating them very soon.
