5th February - Cabbages RUs!!! This week I decided that the outer leaves of the remaining cabbages had gone as brown as I dared let them, and so rather than risk them starting to rot and spoil the inside of the heads, I cut them all
and brought them home. They are now happily residing in the garage fridge, where they will be safe for a few weeks. We have already had Cabbage and Coconut Curry, using one of the smaller savoys. (Recipes 2018). The last ballhead cabbage weighed in at 3.3kg
after all the outer leaves and stalk were removed, which is, as one of neighbours observed "Quite a lot of coleslaw"
Harvest Monday started well with the cabbages,
and continued with leeks, which are still standing well. These ones combined well with the last of the tiny Brussels sprouts to add to our roast dinner today. The potatoes are still good to eat, especially
the Kondor ones which "fluff" nicely when roasted, but we have finished our stored carrots, so bought some. Wow, what a difference in flavour from the ones we grew ourselves. Not much taste of carrots to be honest.. If I ever doubted it was worth the effort,
this would have convinced me to go out and buy a packet of carrot seeds!!
This week's harvest concludes with more mustard leaves, sage and rosemary
