As the aubergines, peppers and tomatoes come to an end it’s time to start eating the chard we’re growing for the winter. We’ve got two rows of chard plants, some given to us by a neighbour as seedlings and one row of plants that we found had self-seeded all around the garden. Today we ate some chopped leaves simply cooked in boiling salted water, drained and then tossed in olive oil and chopped garlic.
I’ve brought the peppers indoors to finish drying as the nights are cooler now.
And a Sunday treat – I made middle eastern sweetmeats with walnuts, dates and ground almonds.
