I’m afraid that my harvest this week is meagre, or to be more accurate my photo’s of harvest are meagre. This week I used quite a lot of parsley but failed to photograph it. Ate quite a lot of watercress but failed to photograph it. Made a few batches of stock – celery, carrots, thyme, bay leaves, and more parsley but failed to photograph them. Well what did I photograph? This:
Yes more silver beet! This lot I braised and served with some chicken cooked with lemon and sage. Very nice it was too.
I also photographed this:
Which topped off a noodle stir fry served with salmon in a soy and ginger sauce. Really good.
Now I know this last item is not really a harvest but I was cleaning out my cupboard when I found it right at the back – so at a push you could say I harvested it from the cupboard. Who knows how long its been there but I think now the only sensible option would be to plant it and see what happens…… or perhaps photograph it from a few more angles cos it does look really cool and frankly I suspect Melbourne’s climate is not really suited to growing sweet potatoes…..
