The caterpillars have have had a good go at my mint. They've literally left no leaf un-chomped, but there was a little bit left for the humans in the house to enjoy for dinner. Now that the caterpillars have eaten all the leaves at the base of the plant I've noticed my dirt has a white film on it...is this mould? Help?
I did plant some coriander a little while ago but (strangely for me) didn't get around to using it. I think it's gone/going to seed, so I just chopped off anything that still resembled coriander.
So we have some #balconyGarden mint, corainder and carrots. Hmmm - what should we make?
A Vietnamese salad of course. I found this recipe on Emily's blog - and it's so simple that I've made it quite a few times for our #meatlessMonday dinners. I didn't make the spring rolls...that's a bit too much for me, but regardless it was a delicious dinner full of fresh, crunch veggies straight from my balcony.
