We’ve tried to put more variety into our vegetable garden this year. Different sorts of cabbages, a wide variety of lettuce, five different sorts of haricots… Not everything has been evenly succesfull (cauliflower the size of an orange 😉 ), but we are pretty happy with what we have harvested so far! And the pumpkin plants, zucchini, cabbages are not store bought, but are all home grown from organic seeds! We buy most of it through the ecological gardening association VELT.
The vegetable garden:
Pics of the Summer harvest. Some of them are too pretty to eat, don’t you think?
Most of the lettuce varieties we have in our vegetable garden are ‘grow and pick’ lettuce. You just pick as much as you need, and have fresh lettuce every day! Wheras a head of lettuce has to be harvested fully when it’s grown, and can be too much at once. The flowers in the pic are edible too: nasturtium (Tropaeolum).
PS: does spitskool really translate as ‘ox heart cabbage’? Maybe that’s why I don’t like it very much (luckily, the other half of the Bruges vegan does, since we now have plenty in the freezer!).
