I’m interested to see if I can live up to my challenge of consuming something from my garden every day of the year that I am at home. I think that I did do this over the last 12 months but I didn’t document the evidence, so here goes as of today, 15th May 2012.
- For lunch I ate my own purple sprouting broccoli leaves (stuffed with beef and barley)
- For tea, it was more of the broccoli leaves as well as some of the flowers (with kidneys in gravy and other, bought vegetables).
I don’t think that I am going to get much more mileage out of the broccoli flowers but there are a good few leaves left, which I hope will tide us over till the new produce is ready to eat. Having realised just what a fantastic crop I get from these vegetables, however, I am hopeful that we will be eating our own purple sprouting broccoli for much of the year, especially as my soil seems well suited to growing them.
I have dedicated a separate page of my blog to this challenge, so see the page entitled ‘The Challenge’ for further instalments 🙂
