Its been lovely in Melbourne this week: sunny, getting warmer and lots of veggies.
On Tuesday I was digging over one of my beds when I found these Kipfler potatoes from what must be the third crop in this bed since I sowed the seed potatoes in about September. This last crop had grown with no direct sun so I have to say I assumed they wouldn’t form tubers but no – a small side dish for Wednesday’s fish. Other than potatoes I harvested silver beet which I teamed with Cannellini beans for the soup I posted here. The thyme and parsley were also used in that dish.
On Wednesday the highlight was these leeks which I roasted.
Thursday brought more silver beet for little silver beet and feta quiches. Friday and I was making cauliflower risotto which called for celery and parsley (in fact most dishes I make seem to call for parsley….).
The weekend came and on Saturday I really felt like a salad – it must be this sudden onset of relative warmth – so I harvested Carrots, Radishes, Spring Onions, Watercress, Rocket, Parsley, and Mint.
Finally it was Sunday and I harvested my first cauliflower of the year – YAY! – and some broccoli (not pictured) – perfect in a stir fry. A good weeks harvesting!
