We are still eating well from the smallholding – yes we are eating a lot of white sprouting broccoli (pretty much every day) …. but I am not complaining.
We had it with a chicken and trotter gear pie – similar to the one I made last year – recipe here.
But a change might be coming soon as the purple sprouting broccoli is now ready
We are finishing the last of the cavolo nero – we had it on a pizza at the weekend …. more on that tomorrow
Of course there is the new shoots of swiss chard, self-seeded last spring from the previous year’s sowing, it has now sprouted again after a winter rest – I love this plant.
I found a surprise romanesco which was lovely
We also have stored potatoes and squash, red cabbage still on the hugelkultur and dried borlotti beans as well as a few bags of frozen beans, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and currants from last summer.
We have finished the last of the onions, carrots and beetroot, but the leeks will tide us through for a bit. Really hoping that the peas, beans and lettuces I have planted in the polytunnel grow well.
Got to go now as I hear cheeping from the spare bedroom which suggests that even more chicks have hatched …. eeek.
