Cauliflower and broccoli are being harvested and all the cabbages are hearting well. I usually just pick cabbage as the need arises - it lasts longer in the garden than in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. I am so happy with the brassicas this year I have just planted another dozen of each to see how they go. Knowing my luck, Spring will jump in really quick this year and the whole lot will be a waste of time.
Tonight we are having grilled chicken breast and steamed vegetables with a satay sauce for dinner. The broccoli, yellow cauliflower and rainbow chard I have just picked will go beautifully with some carrots and potato.
The Kale plants, at present, are just enormous - I keep cutting them back and feeding it to the chooks. Kale is a very acquired taste and as yet I have not been able to get my family to eat it just as a steamed vegetable or added to a salad. Juicing it doesn't turn me on either, so after a quick search on Pinterest I found a recipe for "KALE CHIPS". On further inspection I then found you can flavour them to your hearts content. Salt and vinegar, Soy and Sesame and French Onion just to name a few ..........They sound quick, yummy, and easy to do so I'm off to have a go.
