I picked the last of the womboks, some spring onions and the flowering stalks from my red pak choi, which, when combined with some tofu and an egg fried rice, made a great dinner - chef was the Lad.
I picked two fennel bulbs which went with potato, and bacon one of my favourite fennel dishes.
Lots of broccoli side shoots,
a handsome Savoy cabbage,
a stash of small but oh so tasty parsnips (they are a bit hairy aren't they?).
There has been loads of rosemary, but I didn't pick it, a flock of sulphur crested cockatoos flew in and pruned off a huge number of stems! They also destroyed several parsley plants...must make a scare cockatoo!
There has been a bizarre purple tinged Romanesco broccoli and a 'usual' lime green coloured one. The purple one looks a little like a coral doesn't it? Almost a bit too scary to eat...
And to finish the week's pick - loads of celery stalks.
But before I refer you off to Daphne's to see what others have picked over the last week, I want to show you a picture of the strange alpaca I met at a farm called Evandale in the Southern Highlands.
He was staunchly defending his sheep from my prying eye and was a little cranky! Thankfully he didn't spit !
