Getting green fingers

 

 

 


Central London is a little low on vegetable gardens so we headed off to Hughenden Manor in Buckinghamshire which was once the home of Victorian Prime Minister Disraeli who once said...
"A good eater must be a good man; for a good eater must have a good digestion, and a good digestion depends upon a good conscience."


They have opened up Disraeli's walled kitchen garden where Freddie could work on developing good digestion/conscience/eating habits by seeing chard in all its glory growing in the soil. So overwhelmed was he by this experience he sat back and let his sister do all the digging and planting.

  5. Freddie sends Troy a big hello and hopes that he likes some of the recipes. He thinks the best is Courgette Quesadillas and beetroot and chocolate cake!

    Chard is so good but bitter! Needs to be put into yummy Asian food with honey or sugar and soy sauce.

    Good luck to you guys!
