Whats growing in the Kitchen Garden

Many Veggies and herbs grow well over Winter ready for harvesting in Spring.

At present there is a large bed of garlic, broad beans, asparagus, cabbage and different types of onions.

Ready to pick now the following:
Different types of Lettuce             great for mixed salad

Silver beet   and Spinach            great in stir fry   or spinach lightly cooked with scrambled eggs

Bunching/spring onions             also great in stir fry and soups

Parsley                                       popular in salads, soups and casseroles

Rosemary                                  great for roasts  and potato pizza


Pizza base     Round flat bread

Onto base a couple of tablespoons of your favorite tomato sauce.
Handful of your favorite grated cheese.
Slices of precooked potato slices( rub a sliced garlic clove over them for extra flavour).
Cook for about 15 mins   Last 5 mins sprinkle with some rosemary leaves and black pepper.

When pumpkin in season try with pre-roasted pumpkin pieces. Cut up pumpkin into small pieces toss in a little olive oil and roast with a couple of garlic cloves ,   180 C     about 20mins.
