And, of course as the proverb goes, "With great gardening comes great responsibility"... to harvest!! Often you can get so caught up with sowing and tendering, that you actually forget to harvest regularly. So, harvest, we did, and here are the vegetables that made our tummies go mmmm this last month.
|Stir fry Medley of Snow Peas, Coriander & Courgette|
|(L-R) Cavolo Nero & Slightly Curly Kale|
Also grown from seed were the slightly-Curly Kale and Cavolo Nero both which make a very nice substitute for Chinese leafy greens. If you have never tried Cavolo Nero, it is a really hearty tasty vegetable which, although not quite as delicate as Chinese broccoli (Kai Lan), has a similar dark leafy green taste about it. According to Discover Kale, both Kale and Cavolo Nero are "superfoods" because of their high levels of Vitamin C, beta-carotene and folate.
|(L-R) Tatsoi, Chives, Pak Choi and other Oriental Greens|
|(L) Redcurrants (R) Raspberries - all harvested from our garden|
