Still enjoying the Olympics, still tired from too little sleep and still having too much paid work to do to spend much time blogging. Oh well, at least I’m harvesting the occasional green leaf. Today it was lettuce and mint, both to go into salads served with chicken kebabs. Yes I have decided to ignore the fact that it’s still winter and start BBQing again.
The salads also needed a lot of parsley:
Earlier in the week I also harvested lettuce, that time with parsley and coriander.
Also green but featuring in a stir fry rather than a salad was this broccoli.
I’m really enjoying my broccoli this year and wish I’d planted more of it and fewer cauliflowers. Maybe it’s time to stick to the easier crops… Like parsley, chervil, green garlic and chard, all of which went into an omlette I had for lunch yesterday. I do enjoy a nice green omlette I have to say (with or without ham – he, he, he get it? If not please ignore me I spend far too much time reading children’s books and Dr Seuss is a favourite…)
More white than green was this watermelon radish, which disappointingly was more white than red inside.
White and red was a feature of this potato harvest though – I needed a few more for mash to serve with a sausage braise. These are Dutch Cream and Cranberry Red potatoes.
And that was pretty representative of this week’s harvests. If you are looking for more harvestwise than a splash of white amongst your green then head over to Daphne’s Dandelions and I reckon you’ll probably find every colour of the rainbow.
