While it's been a disappointing week losing so many of my summer crops to a late frost, my harvests have continued to be diverse and plentiful. Here has been the pickings of the past week.
I am picking sugar snaps, yay! I pick big handfuls like the one below every second day.
My saladings are coming in now too.
I am picking 'Salad Bowl' lettuce - both red and white, lots of baby rocket, mint and marjoram.
This little cluster of greens went into a warm chicken salad with piles of sugar snaps and radishes also from the garden. It was a pretty delicious salad.
The curled parsley has been a delight too. I have been making lots more salsa verde and gremolata and am eating these sauces with just about everything.
The broccoli side shoots are still coming in but these are now declining - soon the broccoli glut that has sustained us all winter will be over.
There has been baby leeks, these ones eaten in a baby leek and baked egg dish.
The first of my second planting of cauliflower are forming heads now. This little handful is the first of that crop.
I've also picked the odd strawberry but these are often eaten somewhere between the garden and the house and don't always get photographed...
What are you picking?
I'm contributing this to Daphne's Harvest Monday. Pop over to hers and see harvests from others' gardens.
