Field to table - already!

We managed to make a whole meal the other evening, from food we'd picked ourselves. (Well OK, we had to add bought potatoes, stock cubes, sunflower spread, flour and sugar - but the main ingredients were ours!)

First, the ubiquitous nettle soup:




Next, rhubarb crumble. I've been looking forward to this for weeks, ever since the tiny corms appeared:



It's just a pity we haven't found a custard tree yet. Still looking..

I love nettles and nettle soup. Are they grown in your garden/land? Did you only pick younger leaves?

You need a cow or goat (for the milk/cream) and some chickens (for the eggs) then you'd only need to buy the sugar, vanilla and cornflour...(for the custard, I mean!)
