A surprise on opening the polytunnel
Everything that was in the polytunnel that needed to be cropped, had been cropped some weeks ago. I hadn't been into it since until I took a look inside over the weekend. I was rather surprised to find it full of thriving nasturtiums and nettles. This unexpected bonus will be used to make soups and salads over the next few weeks. Any nasturtium seeds will be pickled. They are quite peppery and make a good alternative to capers.
