First garden goodies

I couldn't hold out any longer to use my chives in the greenhouse. I've pinched off the odd stem to chew on as I potter about with sowing and watering, but today I cut the first handful.
With all this beautiful weather we've been having you can almost sit and watch them grow by the hour.

After a quite search for inspiration on Pinterest, I decided on cheese and chive scones. 
Perfect for after school snacking and if they last long enough possibly breakfast in the morning too.

It feels amazing to use something homegrown in my baking. I can't wait to see what's ready next. My money is on the basil or pea shoots.

  1. It's so lovely when you can start eating your first crops of the year isn't it....we still have lots of leeks from last year, but nothing new for this year yet. Love cheese scones!

  2. I miss our allotment, I can honestly say that they were some of the best years. Nothing so satisfying as growing your own.

  3. They look yummy. Cheese and chives. Perfect mix.

  4. How delicious they look! Fresh picked chives do have a wonderful flavour all their own.
