We enjoyed another super night at the Lovers' Lane Community Garden last night as part of our Dig for Dinner project. Further details will follow in Angus' Diary shortly but for now, here are a few photos to show what we got up to. Well done everyone, we hope your enjoyed the quiche!
After a delicious snack of carrots, peppers, cucumbers, humus, cheese and chive dip and a refreshing drink we set to work in the garden. Our first task was to identify different shapes around the garden. We had to look at the shape of the leaves, the different beds and the gardening tools to find them all. After that we planted some bean seeds and covered them with soil. Then Michael took us to the poly-tunnel to harvest some rocket leaves and purple sprouting broccoli to take back to the kitchen. Once we had enough, we set off to the kitchen for the cooking task. This week we made broccoli and cheese quiche, potato salad and a spicy rocket salad. Making the pastry was good fun and they turned out really well in the end. Once again, we had a fantastic time.
