Coriander and tomatoes in the garden

coriander and basil
I don't grow much foodstuff in the garden, a situation I must rectify. In the meantime, here are photos of coriander, basil and tomatoes coming along nicely.

And a lone wild strawberry that survived the wood pigeons. They have such a great flavour, a bit like the impossible sweets from childhood. The strawberries, that is, not the pigeons.

If, and when you do sample the pigeons do tell us what they taste like!

I believe they taste like chicken. But then everything does.

Yes why is that I do have to say that I've had snake and alligator and to my mind they did taste like chicken only rather fishy or pehpas that was me projecting becuase I'd heard that everythihng taste like chicken!

Humans taste like pork. So I've heard it tell.

Wood pigeons actually taste great and nothing like chicken (much denser) or pork. But a little goes a long way.

As an Italian, I savor fresh basil and tomatoes. Unfortunately, I have such a tiny yard there is not much room for growing anything. I need to get creative. Right now I mooch from my relatives in the suburbs who have more room to grown things.
