After spending much of the past week away I have completely failed to take any photos of my harvests this week so I plan to reuse some from previous weeks. As a result some of these images might be a little familiar.
I harvested my second to last celeriac yesterday and used it in a vegetable soup. I have really enjoyed the celeriacs I grew this year and despite the long growing time I can see that I will have to plant them again for next year.
Also for soup and stock I harvested a number of herbs including thyme, parsley, bay leaves and celery stalks.
The only other thing I harvested this week was some more broccoli for a stir fry we had tonight.
My calabrese is a little slow at the moment and although it is producing side shoots there doesn’t seem to be anything like the volume I’ve had previously. Hopefully now that the days are slowly starting to get longer it will pick up again (I suspect the warmer temperatures forecast for later this week will also assist).
Apologies for the lack of a spotlight this week and thanks for the feedback on my readers question last week – all very much appreciated. This week I have another query; a (presumably Australian) reader’s garlic has been completely dug up and eaten by something. Any ideas about what it would be and how to prevent it? Birds dig up mine but they don’t eat it and so far the rats have left mine alone so I’m really not able to offer much advice. It would be lovely if someone else could.
Of course you could head over to Daphne’s Dandelions and ogle some harvests instead.
