With Wild Garlic in abundance in Leafy Dorset it seemed rude not to
pick a tray full for assorted kitchen creations.......

don't panic....don't panic......if your County hasn't got any.....

just cheat  !!!!!!!!!! nobody will know.

a few Spinach leaves and  2 cloves of Garlic are a good imitation.


2 x Loins of Cod Fillet
Bunch of Wild Garlic
Few Basil Leaves
Olive Oil
100g Bread Crumbs
Pepper and Salt

Blitz the Wild Garlic and Basil leaves and add Olive oil to form
a paste Pesto.

Place the cod loins in an oiled baking dish and spread the paste on top
cover and set aside in the fridge.

cover the cod fillets with the bread crumbs and season well,add cut tomatoes if you wish.

Heat oven to 200 degrees..................

Place baking dish on middle shelf and cook for 20 mins till fish is cooked through .....put dish under grill to toast breadcrumbs.

Serve with new spuds and peas for a simple cod supper with mild Subtle Garlic and Basil flavour.

Just as a warning for those new to asparagus growing...I found a dozen asparagus beetles on my plants today, I've been checking regularly so I think these may be the first, so look out for them. They can make your young spears inedible, and can defoliate any you leave to grow on. Horrible things!

As I have to leave the greenhouse for a fortnight. Some sort of watering system was needed. I got one of those spiked hoses from poundland and just cracked the tap, no good. So I noticed a water timer on Amazon, about 12 and then connected it to the spiked hose which I hung along the inside roof of the greenhouse. Perfect a fine spray for one minute every eight hours seems to be the right combination.

 I have trialed it for a week now in hot and cold weather and it worked a treat. A three minute soaking just flooded the greenhouse the next setting  down was just one minute. At 12 hour intervals, there was not enough 6 hours again too much but 8 hours x 1minute  is plenty.

All the pot plants from the house are in there with some tomatoes and a few trays of late germinating brassica  seeds. I expect the seedlings will go leggy, but they are too small to go out.
