Harvest Monday - 7th March 2016

My harvest this week comprises solely another batch of Purple Sprouting Broccoli:

Six nice chunky spears, just the right amount for a 2-person serving.

The Broccoli has done well this time. We have had a nice steady supply over a period of about two months, and there is still more to come. Which reminds me, it's nearly time to sow the seeds for next year's crop! I think I will grow three plants again. That seems like the ideal quantity for us. It will be one each of three different varieties too, to spread the harvesting period.

Our broccoli this time was served as an accompaniment to some roast Belly Pork. We like lots of veg with our meals, and that one included not only PSB, but also potatoes, celeriac, carrots and French beans. The little home-grown celeriac I showed last week went in with a bigger shop-bought one, because it was too small to make a decent serving on its own!

  1. The PSB is beautiful - even if only one or two veg on the plate come from the garden, it really does make all the difference.

  2. Good old PSB! It certainly is a reliable veg for you. Those are some lovely spears.

  3. Your broccoli looks delicious. I am still waiting for my broccoli to sprout. I am so looking forward to it!

  4. The PSB is lovely, and I'm sure it's much welcome in the 'hungry gap' period.

  5. So your PSB harvest started early because of the mild winter but has made it into March. I guess I didn't have to worry about not being able to enjoy your beautiful PSB photos all winter.

  6. Wow you mist live on the other side of the world. In Switzerland there is still snow.
    Where is your garden?
