Gastronomic rewards! This is where we really require your assistance! Although sowing the seeds, caring for the growing plants and watching the crop reach maturity is very satisfying, the very best part about growing your own fruit and vegetables is eating them!

There is nothing to compare to the taste of home grown organic produce, either eaten straight of the plant or used in preparing dishes, and it’s the details of meals you have prepared that we are after.

With your help, we would like to make this section of the weblog a one stop menu shop, where like-minded gardeners who are unsure what to have for tea can be inspired, and hopefully pop out into the garden and pick some of the ingredients they require.

So, what’s for starters…?
