The last harvest from the veg garden

Past Winter has been exceptionally mild in Belgium. We hardly had any frost nor snow. Which was a good thing for the remaining vegetables in our veg garden! And we are now enjoying lovely Spring weather! We’re now harvesting the last vegetables from last year and preparing the veg garden for a new season. I harvested plenty of kale (boerenkool), parsnip, celery and leeks. Remarkably, the parsley has survived Winter and is starting to grow again. Don’t really know whether these parsley plants will produce again this season. I’ll keep some and sow some new ones in another plot of the veg garden. Garlic which we planted last Fall is looking good! Rhubarb is also growing nicely.  

Vegetable crisps, with a vegan label

We got these vegetable crisps when we were at a friend’s house for drinks. Crisps of carrot, beetroot, parsnip and sweet potato, with some sea salt. And yes they are curiously crunchy, and yummie! And to our surprise, they even carry a label ‘suitable for vegans’, which is quite uncommon for products sold in Belgian stores (Glennans is an English brand). We went looking for them and found them in our local grocery store!
