March = Sunshine (fingers crossed)

Added 8 March 2011 by Emily Botham - Comments (0)

I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that when you read this the first rays of Spring Sunshine will still be with us – a sure sign that for us green fingered foodies there’s a whole new array of exciting fresh produce on the way!

This month in the allotment, (fondly known as “The Lotty”), the forced rhubarb is coming on a treat. Perpetual spinach is looking good along with some leeks. Were chitting our potatoes and planting beans and onions at the mo. Check out some latest snaps, we’ve built raised beds and some how the gnome has made its way in there!

From the soil to the water – things are definitely starting to change with the Spring Salmon season now well underway. If you, like me, are hoping to get your hands on some locally sourced, line caught Salmon, (“tight lines” father!) what better a way to pay homage to such a treat than to get the whole fish smoked courtesy of Bywell Smokery or L.Robson & Sons in Craster (of Craster Kipper fame!) Perhaps best served simply on buttered Soda bread with a wedge of lemon and plenty of freshly ground black pepper – Yum!

A random one now but for those of you who thought turkeys were only good for 1 week of the year I was intrigued to discover this week that you can now buy turkey eggs?! Thanks to Clarence Court Turkey Farm these larger than life eggs can only mean a whole new lease of life to the cake baker trapped in us all! Or for OTT pancakes why not!
