My Very First Harvest...

Is it sad that I am so excited to have been able to harvest my first home grown food from my allotment?
On second thoughts please don't answer that!

Here it is;

Rhubarb.
(I actually had more but the rest is cooking as I type)

These will be turned into this;



Rhubarb and custard cake, which trust me is yummy.
And I don't even really like rhubarb!
Not good for the diet though, oops.

And when I get the next lot I shall be attempting AThriftys Mrs recipe for her;


RHUBARB & GINGER UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE

It looks extremely yummy!

  3. I get a little flutter of pride when I use some home grown herbs, my first chili is growing in too - I almost peed myself when I saw it.
    That cake sounds awesome - save me a piece please rhubarb is one of my fave ever things :)

  5. Congratulations on the fruits of your labour. Just wondering why you chose to grow Rhubarb if you don't like it? Lol.

    1. It does seem strange doesn't it?! It was already on the plot when we took it over.

  6. Fresh rhubarb? you lucky thing! It costs a darn fortune in the supermarkets.
    Since I've tried to eat healthier all homemade puddings have flown out the window. I do miss them, they're my favourite. Hope your cake turned out yummy x

  7. Isn't it exciting? Our rhubarb has shot up since we've been away, too. I'm rather partial to a rhubarb and ginger crumble with lashings of natural yoghurt....mmmmm! x
