It’s weeks like this when I am very, very glad that Coburg has a Farmers Market. I’m smack bang in the middle of a ‘hungry gap’ with many of my winter crops finished or finishing and the summer ones a long way of producing.
As lovely as my green leaves (this week they were parsley, coriander, rocket, silver beet and watercress) and radishes are, its really only the broad beans which offer much in the way of substance.
Fortunately we have had a fair bit of rain of late and the forecast for much of this week is for relative warmth so hopefully other treats aren’t too, too far away.
In the meantime check out what is filling the harvest baskets in the northern hemisphere by heading over to Daphne’s for Harvest Mondays.
