Todays pickings

We seem to be picking things from the garden much sooner this year than last. We picked spring cabbage, spinach, rocket and radishes today.



This is the first time we have grown rocket. I'm surprised at how easy it is. You sew it directly into the ground where you want it to grow, no transplanting or thinning out to worry about. It's a 'cut and come again' crop too although I don't know as yet how long it will keep coming.

Isn't it just the best feeling to pick your own? xx

I've never tried to grow rocket, maybe I'll have a go if it's that easy. Excuse my ignorance but is it used like lettuce?

Claire said...

Yes, it's a kind of lettuce but it has quite a strong taste. Quite peppery.

I've bought seedlings this year as a) I've been lazy and b) I've been lazy!!

Rocket is lovely :0)
