The tall plant on the right is a dill that just grew there (self seeded from a plant last year). We used some of the leaves, but now the plant is covered in drying seeds - does anyone have any tips for using dill seeds? The garden bed on the left wasn't supposed to be so jungle like, but a heap of tomatoes and potatoes self seeded from last year and we just left them to grow. (Most of our 40kg potato harvest last year came from that bed so I guess it was inevitable that some strays would come up this year!).
The elderflower is still flowering. We used some of the flowers a few weeks ago to make elderflower champagne, we used the River Cottage recipe. We drank some on New Years Eve, what can I say - it wasn't bad, but I think I prefer the cordial we made last year!
Interesting lantern like tomatillo fruit. Apparently you wait until the 'lanterns' turn brown and dry and then you pick the fruit..?! Has anyone else grown these before?
