Our Garden Gurus had their annual Get Together this week, and what a lovely time they had ! First the Micro AGM , followed by presentation to VIP Guru Jess who, of course, is one of the founders of the Bath WI Edible Garden. She has been an inspiration to us all, and we hope she enjoys watching her Olive Tree grow.
Then more fizz and scrummy food ! It would not have been Gardeners’ Food Time without produce from the Bath WI Edible Garden of course, so top of the menu was Dahlia tuber rosti, accompanied by Pickled Runner Beans ! Dahlias are known for their vibrant flowers, but they have edible tubers and were brought from Mexico to Europe in the 16th century as a food crop.
Peeled, grated, and ready to cook! Delicious! Thank you Elaine! We also welcomed our newbi Guru Jo, who was introduced to us by her lovely mum Gaye, another of the original Gurus. Its been a happy Centenary year for our WI Garden, and we look forward to lots more fun in 2016. Meanwhile; Keep Digging!
