Wow, the final month of the year already, how scary. Tonight’s post will be a quick one, joining in as usual with Daphne and the other Harvest Monday-ers.
Root vegetables – a motley looking crew, especially this rather mutant parsnip. In total there were 7 parsnips of varying sizes, three carrots and two beetroot. They were all roasted and added to a salad with mixed lettuce, chickpeas and goats cheese and dressed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard.
A big pile of kale – I picked almost all the leaves off the plants thinking they will bolt soon, but they’ve already sprung back so I’ll be picking for a while longer it seems. I chopped all of this up (after washing and thoroughly de-caterpillaring) and froze it.
A whole celery – all my celery is going to seed so I’m in the process of picking most of it. I will collect seed from one of the plants. As they need a lot of water I won’t grow them over the summer. This lot is still in the fridge, I’m thinking a Waldorf salad.
2 onions – they are quite green still so I’ll use them as salad onions I think.
4 slightly bigger garlic bulbs, still tiny though. The rest will have to come out soon by the looks of the plants. I hope they are a bit bigger than these ones!
And the centrepiece, a dozen blueberries (the first off my bush yay!) and two glorious strawberries. I ate them with some plain yogurt for breakfast one morning.
