Poppy, Flower Salad and A Gift

This was the most colorful…different kind of salad…and the zuchinni squash with rice, veggies, cheese, nuts…Oh my!…had to share!



1    Poppies have self-seeded throughout our vegetable garden and are quite glorious amongst the green.

2   The mixed red and green lettuces  are this year untouched by slugs (so far!) and make a delicious salad along with some peppery nasturtiums and delicate white borage flowers.

3    Our neighbours have a glut of courgettes (as opposed to our pathetic specimens which are rotting on the stems) and  a gift of gorgeous shiny green courgettes was brought round this afternoon. Just one became our supper, stuffed with rice, herbs, tomatoes and peas covered with cheese then with roasted pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, sesame seeds and slivers of almonds and served with the colourful salad – delicious. Thanks to Jim and  djdfr for the recipe idea)
