Friday 22nd July 2016 – Back where I belong!

My Jury Duty has finally finished. They’ll have to find some other people to sort out the criminals. I can’t be called for another 2 years at least. I may never be called again! It was a very interesting thing to do, and I learnt a lot. I had 2 cases and neither of which were gruesome, which was something I wasn’t looking forward to. So now I’m back where I belong, where the pigeons fly, to the trees so high! I had a great 3 hours on my plots today and harvested the first of my Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, Lettuce, Cucumber and Beetroot. Plus I did a load more weeding, watering a feeding. So all in all a very pleasant time. Plus a little update on my Squash, Pumpkins and how everything is growing in the greenhouse.

      Ready in 50 mins
      Crush 1 garlic and chop 1 onion. Spray fry light in a pan. Stir fry the garlic and onion with 1tsp cumin seeds, 1tsp ground coriander and 2 tap curry powder fire 1-2 mins. Make up 650ml of hot veg stock – add 150ml to the pan with 250g of peeled and cubed raw beetroot. Simmer for 5 mins or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add 350g cubed butternut flesh and a further 250ml of the stock. Simmer for 10 mins. add the remaining stock and simmer for 10 mins. Add 100ml of reduced fat coconut milk and 100g half green beans and simmer for 5 mins.
      Remove from the heat, season and add 50g of roughly chopped chard with no stems and chopped coriander. Serve with boiled rice and lime wedges. Enjoy.
