Here's one "in action" as it were...
I have also picked what I could from the re-sprouting chicory roots. Not a big harvest, but a welcome bonus which involved no effort at all!
In the other wine-box the first radishes are beginning to swell. They have taken a lot longer than I expected, presumably because of the cold wet weather. I just hope this hasn't made them tough. Normally it is best to grow radishes in conditions that promote rapid growth - moist soil but lots of sunshine.
In order to secure a succession of salads I sowed some more seeds last weekend - one tray of mixed lettuces, and one tray of Rocket. I'll do this at intervals of about a month for the next 4 or 5 months.
To finish this post, I offer all you salad-lovers this: a simple but fresh salad based on soft, creamy goats' cheese, with lettuce, chard and pea-shoots from the garden...
I ate this with some wholemeal pitta bread, but in retrospect I wish I had had some of those Swedish-style crispbreads from Peter's Yard. They would have been perfect for the occasion.
By the way, the garnish on the cheese is not parsley, it is Chervil, grown from seeds sent to me all the way from Australia by Diana of Kebun Malay Kadazan Girls. Thanks, Diana.
