Daily Harvest 2011
« on: March 12, 2011, 08:53 »
The daily harvest thread ground to a halt last October.

http://chat.allotment-garden.org/index.php?topic=42814.345

Surely people have had stuff out of the ground since then?

Anyway, rather than tail end it I thought I'd kick a new one off for this year. The previous one will still be around as per the link to refer to.

So, here's this morning's pickings:

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

The first pick is always sooo lovely :)

I picked just a few sticks (from the plants I grew from seed) last week and made a crumble just for me. But it was worth it  :lol:

I couldnt find it when i was looking for it, must not have looking in the right places ::)

Anyway, not the biggest harvest but we have already had some chives out of the garden :)
If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!

Yesterday, the last of the Parsnips were dug up and the last but one Swede. The Brussels have enough on them for a few more dinners and the tops have not yet been eaten either.

Yes!

20" long, 17" round, just under 4lb.  So it's longer than DD's famous parsnip, the same circumference, but lighter than his!

Still making my way through last years leeks and parsnips :). PSB suffered at the hands of the weather and the pigeons  >:(

That parsnip is a corked Yorkie  :ohmy:  was it ok in the middle? I sometimes find the larger ones go a bit woody in the middle.

It will be chopped and made into soup - it probably is rather woody  :wub: :D
