Spring veggie carnival

Winter has been reasonably quiet in the vegie patch. We have contented ourselves with munching away on silver beet, kale and lettuce while garlic and leeks motored along quietly in the background.

However the threatening spring has caused a flurry of activity more recently. Virtually all of our cabbages (or were they cauliflowers?) have bolted and been fed to the chooks, while mizuna, potatos and basil have all poked their heads above ground and we have been able to add delicious black tuscan kale to our evening meals.

The red cabbages and brocoli are also picking up speed, although thankfully it doesn’t look as if they’ll be able to catch up with the bolting cauliflowers (or were they cabbages?).
