At the start of the growing year it's all about 'the first of the ...', now we are into the tail end of the growing year and it's pretty much all about ' the last of the...'. This morning I brought in the last of the Broccoli, the chickens were lucky I gave them all of the leaves and some of the stems ...
... but the rest went in a big pan to make this weeks lunchtime soups.
I padded it out with some celery, a couple of onions and a couple of homegrown potatoes, then a handful of soup mix for added goodness. After the first stirring I decided a few cloves of garlic and a pinch of chilli flakes would be a good idea.
They were ... the finished soup is a well rounded very healthy tasting panful of green goodness. Much nicer than some other green things we've been trying recently. I'll tell you more about that tomorrow, for now I have to get off the computer as it's telling me it wants to start an 'important update'.
And anyway I need to feed and walk the dogs before the weather turns any nastier than it already is here. We woke this morning to a weird and slightly eerie yellow coloured world and after a day of sunshine and blue skies it looks like the high winds have brought the yellow clouds back again to round off the day.
So that's ' the last of ... my blogging ' for tonight then ;-)
