At the market today we scored our best ever haul of lettuce and rocket, and not just any old lettuce - fancy lettuce. It is the feasting time of season - middle of the dry - when sunlight and water combine to provide us with an abundance of carrots, tomatoes, greens, bananas, papaya, cabbage & cucumbers. Not a huge variety, but at least there is plenty of it. The lettuce takes up more room in the fridge than in our stomachs.
I made a pared down version of rocket pesto (rocket, sunflower seeds & water) to have with salad and fresh spring rolls, and a raw tomato, carrot & papaya soup, garnished with dill from our garden.
