|Heritage turnips and the leeks have done really well|
in the rich soil here without needing any extra
help this year from me ...............
|Wild sorrel - this is growing everywhere on the land here|
|The fennel plants have started to|
re-grow at the base - the leaves are
great in salads and for making tea.
|Cultivated rocket has self seeded itself around the|
garden after an initial sowing earlier this year -
it has survived the winter well. Great in salads
and pesto .....................
|Rocket flowers in January!! Great|
|Great cabbages dotted around the land. This is a|
Biaugerme heritage variety.
|The leeks have done amazingly well on an area|
of rich soil.
|'Mache' in French. Hasn't been that vigorous. Leaves|
used in salads.
|Chervil (cerfeuil) - a lovely addition to salads with|
its slight aniseed flavour.
|Another view of the turnips|
|Baby lettuces that survived the frost with the help|
of a little mulch around them.
|The romanesco cauliflower heads were a little small|
but then they had no extra help from me.
|Chard is very happy here. It self seeds|
itself freely and provides winter
|Lots of broccoli. You can eat|
the leaves of the plants as well.
|Radishes that I sowed earlier in the year have|
continued to self seed everywhere.
|Marigold flowers in winter!!|
|Cresson alénoise - very hardy and deliciously|
|A great broccoli head in the round garden.|
|The potatoes harvested earlier in the year are still|
|The heritage Hokaido green|
pumpkins are still going strong. They
are out in my old camper van which
acts as fridge in the winter. They make
a lovely dense soup, roast and mashed
|Still eating the yacon roots harvested in November.|
I just grew a couple of plants but next year hope
to grow a significant crop. They can be eaten
raw or cooked.
