|From the bottom they were:|
Romanesco... we ate those, Black Tuscan and Red Russian kales...
then Chard [covered], Tenderstem Brocolli, Red Cabbage, Celery and Celeriac...
finally Carrots, Beetroot and Chicory [still green!]
The Leeks don't look very well either, but there is greenery and, therefore, probably enough to make a large amount of potato and leek soup.... yes, not leek and potato soup! Them leeks will be cut up and frozen [again] to be used to flavour potato and other soups... the hungry gap is upon us... we have plenty of potatoes and pumpkins. We haven't looked at what's left underground... haven't dared really.
|Just about recognisable as Leeks!|
In the freezer we have Runner beans, French [string] beans and Peas... along with Parsnips and re-frozen cabbage... and more pumpkin! In the cellier we have plenty of dried beans... but the only really fresh greens we have was one cabbage that was in the kitchen... and the chard, once it gets going again.
We've also got some dried peppers, shallots, etc., so soups and stews look to be our diet until salad crops get going.
|Carrots... Autumn King|
Underground report... have picked a swede... still OK and tasty... and a couple of carrots... fine! Haven't tried digging up the Jerusalem Artichokes yet though... and there's only one Celeriac left... but it feels nice and firm... so there may be hope there?
