Oh it’s a bit of a sad state of affairs in the harvest world around here. Life has been too busy, too wet and too cold for me to even do my regular wander and harvest much at all during the week. As a result all I have for this week’s harvest is:
Two bunches of parsley, one for a chicken noodle soup and the other for some chicken stock.
And a couple more heads of broccoli, I only managed to photograph before they were chopped up, blanched and frozen. Having looked at the plants this evening, it looks like I’ve picked all the bigger ones (totally about 1.25kg) but I have probably another six or eight smaller (around 100g) heads and lots of side shoots.
There is one good thing about all this broccoli harvesting, we’ve had a break from the silver beet and the plants are looking fabulous again now after looking pretty picked over for a while.
I also meant to take some snaps of my ailing peas but that didn’t happen either. Perhaps next week.
For more harvests head to Daphne’s.
