Alternative approach to weeding...

Jack-by-the-hedge and dandelions by the external door to our cellar...

The resulting pesto... and it really is that green!

Jack-by-the-hedge and dandelions seem to like the bank beside the house where the external door to the cellar is. So I thought I would put them to some good use and make pesto.

Jack-by-the-hedge (garlic mustard) is everywhere at this time of year and tastes subtly garlicky without being stinky.

The pesto goes great with fresh cherry tomatoes to make a simple sauce for pasta.

revenant Interesting... Pity I can't do the "Londoner thinks mushy peas are guacamole" joke here.
