We are what we eat: vegetables!

What vegetables have we eaten this year?  

So far from the garden we've had leeks (sown last year), chard (last year's and new season), sorrel, rhubarb, kale, spring onions, miner's lettuce, arugula, and lettuce. 

What's in the near future?  

All of the above of course, though I'm leaving the remaining leeks to go to seed.  Peas are forming little pods now, as are broad beans.  Garlic is nearing maturity.  I've got a couple pak choi just about ready too. 

What's planted for later on?  

Runner beans, climbing beans, rutabaga, broccoli, cabbage, zuccini, cucumber, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, beets, celeriac, carrots, pumpkins, squash.  Whew, did I miss anything?

What's to be sown still?

Some more little batches of things like lettuce, spring onion, and pak choi of course.  Chicory.  Brussels sprouts, if my plants hurry up and finish making seed.  More kale and spring cabbage, maybe. 

Do we eat all this?

Yum!  We do--even the six year old.
