Musings & Contemplations

Summer is Here….What’s in Season?

This is technically an “Out of Office” Notification! This morning we are heading off to Download Festival for 5 days and although I have been organised enough (just!) to schedule some great posts for you, please do not be offended if any comments go without replies until Tuesday! Please still leave your feedback :) I love all comments and will look forward to seeing what you’ve liked over the weekend!

As you may have noticed at the top of the page I have a “Seasonal Produce” Guide tab, I change this each season as a rough guide to what yummy vegetables you can find in your local farmers market or shop at the moment (UK based). I’ve also started including some recipe suggestions to help you be inspired with what to do with the latest crops. I’ve given you an outline of some ideas below, I really hope you enjoy my favourite Summer picks-
