Down on the Farm

We took a road trip to a great spot today, you would never know that you are about 25 minutes from Putney.

Cornfield

Looks like somewhere in Kansas to me, but if you follow the A3 out of London a piece, you will end up at Garsons Farm. Aside from the fact that it was a beautiful day, believe it or not, they had a huge array of fruit and veggies that you can pick yourself. We started out with apples, and then moved on to my favorite, mostly because of their beauty, a sea of green

Cabbages

cabbages. (They look better if you enlarge the photo, just click on it.) The light was hitting the leaves just right, and they were all looking up at me, I had to pick one! Luckily I found a piece of salt beef in the farm shop and proceeded to make cornedbeef and cabbage, one of my faves.

There was also picking today for carrots, pumpkins, squash, courgette (zucchini), string beans, runner beans, onions, peas, corn, and flowers. You could definately fill up your fridge! Don't forget the beautiful farm shop, I could have spent all day if the kids weren't driving me nuts by then. The Guinea pigs are going to have a feast with all of the cabbage. Back to cooking!
