Picked this week 26th May 2013

 I'm managing at last to get a bit more variety in my salad leaves - 'proper' lettuce above
and chard below with hot white radishes.

...and a mix of just about everything

Hoping for home grown tomatoes and cucumbers soon though.


  1. Nice greens! Saw a good Jamie Oliver youtube video with an Italian recipe for greens. He uses both the leaves and the stalks off the chard.

    1. I have a recipe somewhere that adds the stalks to a quiche-like dish. I've never tried it though. The most I ever do with them, is throw them in stir-fry.
