Picked this week - 9th February 2014

There's a lot of brassicas in various guises this week.

 Two tiny cabbages that weren't going to grow any more. Barely enough for one person on either though.

A heap of brussels sprouts, some a bit too open but edible even so.

Lots of kale - probably more than we'll eat - and tiny broccoli spears
A bit more unusual - red kale which was grown last year as an early salad leaf in the poly greenhouse and just somehow got left there.
Spinach off course - a bit dirty and nibbled so careful picking through needed.
Another winter staple - leeks, again.
and various radishes - these are from a B+Q cheap packet labelled 'mixed radish' and they certainly are, but I'm still glad to have fresh radish at this time of year. As a general rule, the whiter they are, the hotter they taste.

and these rather fat and weird radish were found in the garden while I was weeding and clearing. I new there were lots of tops and leaves but never expected to find radish when I pulled them up.
