In the Garden Now - June '15

When it comes to eating out of the garden June is a slow month although the flowers are showy, frequent and fragrant. Early roses, peonies, phlox, iris, delphinium and nameless ones

For food there is chives, green onions, shallots and leeks [from last year]. Some tender spears of asparagus.

There is sorrel for sauce and fish soup. This is been wonderful. I love making a light, creamy fish soup with daikon and stirring hand fulls of sorrel in at the very end.

The queen of June may be strawberries, which I have been showing on instagram. Along with other delights of the season. We have full and happy strawberry beds, the drought is over and we are eating them with joy. While standing in the garden, with cream and almond biscuit/shortcake. Next there will be a tart.

Wishing everyone sweetness today...
