Seasonal vegetables

Eating vegetables when they are in season is not only healthier, better for the environment and interesting, but, as I have written previously, makes food much more interesting.  Waiting for a particular fruit or vegetable in season (rather than having whatever you want flown from wherever it is in season) makes the enjoyment of the food so much more.

Right now, we have broccoli daily...
 .... the "already picked" broccoli heads are now producing side shoots as well....


... the last of the green beans....
And soon....  the cabbages are coming.....
.... and so are the fennel bulbs....

The most recent potato plants are growing in the soil enriched with goat poo....

... and we'll have new potatoes in the spring (though a few will be bandicooted before then, I'm sure.)
