Foraging - The Blog

Inspired by baldeagle62, I decided on salmon and salad for dinner tonight. We had celery, cucumber and peppers left in the fridge, but no salad leaf to go with it. So I foraged in the garden for food. I found red chard, rocket, nasturtiums, leaf radish, leaf carrot, wrinkled cress, red amaranth, purslane and burnet. I also picked a couple of radishes. What's in your garden?

Strawberries, raspberries, rockery plants, a rockery, a dog poo cos we were up late this morning and soon to be a buried teenager if he keeps leaving bits of motorbike in the middle of the lawn to chew up the Flymo.

@baldeagle62, you can put pots on your decking and plant salad leaves seeds in them now, ready to eat in three weeks. Get going!

@rivierakid. You'll recognise nasturtiums when you see them, you can eat the leaves or the flowers! Follow the link on this comment www.thompson-morgan.com/seeds1...>>

@baldeagle62. Salmon - let it marinade briefly with rapeseed oil or olive oil and your chosed spices or herbs. I like Jamie's Spicy Szechuan, but salmon will take most things, even a little curry powder. Then, forget that cheffy nonsense about be gentle with it and wrap it in foil and put it in the oven -no!, put it under the grill or on the bbq and crisp it up. The crispy bits are the best! Fresh tuna fillet is good, but don't overcook or it will be dry. Trout fillet - be gentle with it. If you have salad, try sainsburys mango and chilli dressing drizzled over it. Adds an extra dimension without too many calories. Also good drizzled on sea bass.

My garden is getting smaller and smaller due to the fact that I have not tended the ever growing hedge. My neighbour (TattooedJackass) must be pulling his hair out. Sorry mate.

Decking in my garden Bassist!!! Well done on the healthy eating programme. Great time of year to get a kick start as its salad weather. I must eat more fish, but im just not a fishy person!! Any ideas to get me going. I tried salmon but it had to have a sauce on it!!!

Nice! - I have garden, its mostly full of grass and hedgehogs - come to think of it, so is the house! - Yes really - we keep a pet (very tame) British female hedgehog called Wedgie.. Anyway, as a couple of cranky vegetarians, I'm surprised we don't grow things! - So the next time you plant seeds in your garden, please let the rest of us know so we can copy?

Are you in your garden or The Vale of Evesham? And what pray tell is/are nasturtiums? Sounds like something the Klingons would eat.lol

Lol! I just plant seeds and hope things come up. Courgettes are flowering, so looking forward to those. Lots of other stuff out there too - herbs, tomatos, redcurrants, blackcurrants, cucumber etc. Not much ready yet as the season started so late.

No sign of a C: drive out there Bassist?I'm still confused by all the technical stuff!But joking apart I do know what radish,carrot and cress are.I don't have a garden now but when I did I put some tomato plants out one year and grew a very successful crop of cherry tomatoes.I was pleased with myself because I know nothing about horticulture.
