Payback Time!

It's around this time of year that the allotment starts to yield some proper crops at last. The strawberries have started to fruit, and there really is nothing more Summery than eating a freshly picked strawb on a sunny morning. This week we have also harvested a few elderflowers, and made cordial and started some champagne. The cordial makes a delicious addition to the strawberries, sweet and fragrant.
I cut myself a bouquet from the allotment border- the Nigella and Knautia look lovely, and I adore the parsnip flowers which I allow to go to seed for next years crop. Parsnip flowers make me sneeze like crazy, but the almost coconut scent is worth it!
