In this basket is my final batch of Brussels Sprouts - about 300g.
I have also cut the top off one of the plants to provide us with what is effectively a Cabbage. If we enjoy it, I'll cut the other two. It's a while since I ate Sprout Tops and I seem to recall them being very strongly flavoured.
The sprouts are joined by a Curly Endive - small, but looking good.
And then there is this pale-coloured Radicchio. Is it perhaps "Variegato di Castelfranco"? It came from a mixed pack, so I can't be sure.
Being able to pick something fresh from your own garden, even in the depths of Winter, is just so rewarding!
Everything looks great!ReplyDelete
But that Radiccio is cute ;)
I have massive garden envy. Does it take a lot of work to maintain your veg patch? The end result is fabulous and I would love to grow more than the few tomatoes I usually grow but I'm worried I won't have the time to keep on top of things.ReplyDelete
Hi Kay; No, I don't consider that my veg patch takes a lot of work. I use the "little-and-often" approach - which is eminently practicable when my garden is right outside my door. And the results fully justify the effort involved.Delete
Fab harvest for January Mark, well done.ReplyDelete
Well done! I must find a way to do some winter harvesting - (Though there is a sprout stalk still in the ground)ReplyDelete
Very nice! I love the raddichio! and wish I had the brussel sprouts. Still need to get down to my garden but Michelle's schedule has changed for this semester and I am trying to juggle the work I have to do at home, the ridiculous times she has classes (some in the morning some in the afternoon) and my work away from home :(ReplyDelete
I agree that winter harvest are rewarding - we need to replenish our stocks so a trip to the plot is on the cards,ReplyDelete
That's a great harvest. I must do better with my winter crops this year.ReplyDelete
Great haul! I've heard sprout tops aren't for the fair hearted to best of luck!ReplyDelete
