Feeding the 5000

We had a family lunch for 12 of us today and the lottie provided all of the veg. We had a big garden salad with lettuce (4 different varieties), cucumber, radish, spring onion, carrot and pepper. We also used onion, garlic and potatoes in the main course all from the lottie. I've got beans and courgettes to weave into next weeks meal plan and a lovely bunch of calebrese from a plant I had given up on. Hurrah for the productive days of August!


  1. Glad it's all going's so satisfying when you can produce a meal and not only say...'I cooked that'...but,..... 'I grew that !!' ....too!

  2. It makes you proud when you're able to provide food for the table. You've done well to be able to feed 12 in one sitting.

  3. That is a lot of food! Well done...its a good feeling, to feed your loved ones from what you have grown, isn't it?

  4. That lunch sounded yummy. Hope your guests were suitably impressed!
