Nothing beats a stew with ingredients fresh from the garden. YUM!!
Very true, Sue
I like the idea of keeping your veg outside. My dad and grandfather used to grow chrysanthemums in a particulary large greenhouse, they used to sell the flowers. They ordered a huge numbers of stools? each year. (I think that's the correct term) and I'm pretty sure 1000 too. It stopped when I was very young though. x
I'm guessing that they grew the large flowered ones, Jo.
Like you I remember pruning the thorny blackberries, and the thornless ones we have now are so much nicer to harvest and take care of. A wild, thorny one will still pop up in other areas though thanks to the birds. Perhaps I need to prune my white currants too. They're only three years old but they have always been tiny so far. Your chicken stew sounds warming on a cold day!
We also get wild ones popping up, Dave. I don't know whether pruning will help the whitecurrants but it can't do any harm.
Chickens? I see no chickens! Compared with (some of) my Parsnips, yours are positively beautiful - certainly worthy of their place in a vase alongside the Chrysanthemums!
The chicken was almost the only bought ingredient, Mark. We will have to see what the other parsnips are like.
That is an excellent 'harvest' for your stew pot. Hope it was as tasty as it all looks.
It was, Jayne.
I'm surprised you're getting such good looking mums at this time of year. And what amazing fat parsnips those are!
The flowers are protected from the weather inside the greenhouse, Michelle and they usually flower at this time.
How wonderful to be able to harvest veggies for a stew at this time of the year. Those parsnips are super! Love the mums too.xxx
It's so good to harvest and cook right from the garden! Any photos of the chicken stew?
I'm afraid not, Malar:-)
