It's been a good week for pickings and for the first week in a long time I have had radishes.
These were quickly demolished - very crunchy and very white inside - there are more to come.
I have also picked some baby leeks. They were quite strongly oniony - my eyes stung a little while cutting them up to go into a Lamb and Leek Risotto.
I picked the first of the snow peas too. Normally I grow snow peas over the coldest months and normally I have enough to eat every other day. This year the chickens ate most of my snow peas while they were quite young. Only a few plants made it to maturity and these little peas are from them.
At the end of July I planted a whole lot more snow peas in Fortress Wallaby. Safe from chickens and wallabies, I am hoping for a great crop soon.
The first of my second planting of broccoli have matured with only small heads. Most of these went into a Broccoli Orecchiette.
There has been a few decent sized parsnips, and
some good sized beetroot - these got pickled.
There has also been a huge bunch of celery.
Finally, there has been more fennel - lots of fennel. Two bulbs went into a Potato and Fennel Fritatta - it was pretty delicious. And two of them went in a little parcel to neighbours along with a dozen eggs and four tomato seedlings. It's nice to share the excess.
I am contributing this post to Daphne's Harvest Monday. Pop over to hers to see produce from all over the world.
