I would love to tell you how much planting I’ve done recently: lettuce, cucumbers, eggplant & capsicum but I won’t as today is supposed to be about what I’m taking out of the garden rather than what I’m putting in. With that in mind I certainly wont mention the celeriac, parsley, basil or pumpkin being planted, and you wont hear about the celery and kale either.
What you will hear about are: broad beans, rocket and watercress. broad beans, rocket and lettuce, broad beans, rocket and bay leaves, broad beans, rocket and tarragon, broad beans, rocket and mint……………basically it’s all broad beans and herbs here ……. and this lone garlic head. It’s stalk was flopping over so I pulled it and found (to my surprise) that it had formed cloves. It may be small, it may be a little pathetic, it may be my only one this year but at least there are cloves.
And damn fine cloves they are too. Perfect to eat with all those Broad beans and rocket….
For other harvests (almost certainly with greater variety than mine) head over to Daphne’s.
