And then there were none

Cabbages that is. Miss e is our keen vegie gardener. Her success is intermittent, dependant on her dedication to regular hand watering and the war against pests. She is serious about her vegies being organic so there is no mention of sprays (which I agree with).

Her winter crop was a winner. We have been harvesting the cabbages on a daily basis for the past week. They are delicious. They are about half the size of shop bought ones so each meal we were able to use two. 

Miss e is also our budding chef. It was a great opportunity to look for new and exciting cabbage recipes. She made this version of braised cabbage with bacon, from Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food. How great that the core idea of the book is to teach someone a recipe, and miss e learnt with my help.

Another winner was of course, coleslaw. Served as a side salad with dinner, and yesterday in buns with pork and fennel sausages cooked on the bbq. Yummy! Of interest, we all commented how home grown cabbage did not play havoc on the bowels as we were anticipating.

This week we will be harvesting broccoli, continuing to eat snow peas from the vine, and hoping master x leaves a few of the strawberries on the plants until they become red.
