Just when I think I am falling head long into a hungry gap the garden seems to surprise me. In this last week I have started picking the borlotti, which I am going to eat green (or red and green).
Readers of yesterday's post will have already heard of my surprise potato harvest. I now have a very full basket of Sebago and Desiree!
The first of the fennel crop planted in August was picked this week too. This one seems to have matured quite quickly - the others planted at the same time will take a while longer to thicken.
Looking at this week's pick, I am thinking of a borlotti, potato and fennel salad...
I've picked quite a few beetroot lately which have been roasted and eaten in salads with pomegranate molasses dressing and home-made feta.
And there has been a few radishes too eaten dipped in homous.
That's been the pick, what's coming in from your patch?
I'm contributing this to Daphne's Harvest Monday. Pop over to hers to see others' produce.
