This week has been a good harvesting week. Lots of photos and lots of broad beans:
Sometimes there were broad beans with green garlic thrown in:
When that happened I cooked them together with the mint shown below – just delicious and recipe to come on Thursday. The remaining broad beans went into pasta or a chicken dish.
The other thing I harvested a lot of (and managed to photograph at least once) was lettuce:
Lettuce was used in sandwiches and salads and in particular in the cucumber salad I posted last week. These radishes went into that as well.
My newest rainbow chard planting has started producing, I used this to make chicken saag.
I gave these strawberries to the kids this week, but not before taking a quick snap. I have to say the flavour was disappointing – there were a few more that I ate, and I plan to try again in a new spot with a new variety next year.
Last but certainly not least I harvested another beautiful red cabbage. Half went into a coleslaw I served with this evenings fish cakes and the rest I will use tomorrow – not sure how yet…..
For more harvest excitement head over to Daphne’s Dandelions and see food from around the world.
