A Green and Orange Menu!

This week we cooked

Pasta with Carrot and Cumin

Arroz Verde

Pumpkin Pizza

Thai Carrot Salad

Fried Green Tomatoes with Yoghurt



The whole menu tended to be a little ‘orange’ this week – but no-one complained about the delicious Thai Carrot Salad – always so popular.


And we did have green rice and fried green tomatoes to balance the orange! We harvested lots of green tomatoes (I must remember to plant them where they are less shaded next year!) this week.


In the garden we have been preparing some of our raised beds for planting broad beans and garlic. This has entailed clearing beds out (hence the harvesting of all the green tomatoes) and re-locating some plants. We are trying to empty out our apple crates so that they can be moved to the new garden and are establishing a ‘Perennial Bed’ for plants such as mint, parsley, chives, artichokes, bay, rosemary, etc.



We will shortly be getting a delivery of soil for the raised beds in the new garden. There will be lots of work for our students to do, filling the new beds with soil so that we can start planting.


For the last two weeks of term we will be cooking

Pasta with a Vegetable Sauce

Curried Eggs

Pizza of the Imagination

Pumpkin and Spinach Salad

Salad of the Imagination


Lots of opportunity to use up all our vegetables before the holidays!
