Summer = season of green.
Broad beans until we can’t face another broad bean. There are some great broad beans recipes HERE.
I divided up my monster stinging nettle plant and now I have baby nettles thriving away. (Anyone local want a nettle plant?) There is a delicious herbal tea recipe featuring nettles HERE. It suggests it is a good autumn tea, but I like it year round. Nettles are a wonder herb and are seriously good for you – very high in iron, it also builds healthy blood cells and clears chest congestion, among other things. It also tastes great in soup – very savoury and iron-rich tasting.
Green polka dot sundress with my green roman sandals. Welcome in summer, you’ve been a long time coming this year!
