Day 303 - Why the Food is Lasting So Well


Our food supplies are lasting well, really surprisingly well, and when I look at this mornings breakfast it's no wonder really.  Just one slice of bread and two of our eggs.  Lunch will be a bowl of homemade soup with veggies picked straight from the polytunnel and bulked out with a couple of potatoes.

I do like a soup with some potato in it, it seems to add a velvety thickness and mellow together the flavour of the other things you add.  So I add at least one chopped up potato or any leftover mash we have in the fridge to most of the soups I make.  So it's the home produced foods that are making our bought in foods last so well.

Someone asked what we still have growing for us to eat, so here is a list.

Cucumbers
Radishes
Celery
Spring Onion
Lettuce
Mixed Leaves
Spinach
Kale
Kohlrabi
Carrots
Chard
Leeks
Cabbage
Courgette

Cooking Apples on the far tree.

Which is not a bad list  of pickable foods as we head into November.

Today is a No Spend Day

  1. You can't beat homemade soups for lunch and you are doing well with all the lovely variety of vegetables you still have growing.
