Wild garlic pesto

Wild garlic pesto

Firstly I wish these were our wedding favours! But too early in the year, great fun foraging for wild garlic and making this pesto!


We managed to forage some Sussex wild garlic and had a day mass producing some wild garlic pesto and just an experiment making some wild garlic hummus (had a glut of it!) The recipe was so easy and quick which was brilliant and we have frozen some of the pesto, so hopefully can make some of the wild garlic hummus for the wedding day picnic. This we will be serving in our second hand picnic baskets which we managed to get super cheap from a brilliant second hand shop locally called emmaus (do check it out if you are in the Brighton area. We will be putting the hummus in jars to avoid plastic! Picture to follow nearer the date!

Can you do a sustainable wedding?

Hi All,
 First and foremost I am a nurse, I would like to say firstly I am a crafter and wedding planner but at the moment just a dream! I am planning our wedding in 6 months and trying to be green and sustainable along the way. Only 4 months to the big day and I thought (sadly too late) that this would be a good way to share our greeness!

Sweet williams for the wild wedding jars! Madly we are trying to grow all our real flowers in our tiny garden currently overrun with pots all over the place! These tiny plugs of sweet williams came from Van Meuwen arrived yesterday and I potted them into these tiny pots last night. Also have been scavenging jars from everywhere for the vases these will be outside, everything upcycled!
