We’ve been enjoying a taste of our future the last two nights – delicious home grown Spinach. It’s one of the great grow-your-own cliches that home-grown food tastes immeasurably better than anything store-bought. Now this didn’t come from our garden – it was generously donated from my Mother’s allotment, so we can’t put the fantastic taste down to a warm, worthy glow from our own harvesting. And the taste was fantastic.

I’m not usually that bothered by Spinach, can take it or leave it, but last night I was onto thirds before we ran out, and I’d have kept going if there was more. So now I’m really looking forward to our own home-grown veges!

The recipes? Last night we had it rinsed, wilted, and served with butter and pepper. Tonight we had the rest with chicken in a cheese sauce.

Yum. Bring on our first harvest!
