Edibles

These radishes are a bit small – they have all been mainly leaf and no root…. something to do with how much I water them? And the leaves aren’t too tasty – a bit hairy and bitter *eurgh*

This bowl contains perpetual spinach/chard and can be eaten raw in a salad or added to dishes like spinach, to wilt down. It has probably been my most successful crop. The cress (polycress) on top is another easy-to-grow salad leaf, and it grows really quickly.

This photograph shows some not-quite-ready-yet rockst leaves, growing in one of those metal take-away containers. The rocket tastes peppery and is easy to grow and it can be grown in something as simple as this container, which can be reused. Much better than those plastic bags full of chlorine-rinsed leaves.
