Walking around the garden... I'm kind of embarrassed.... I'm finding last year's celeriac dotted around the garden (quite a bit of it). I grew celeriac for the first time last Spring from seed, planted it outside in June, and much of it is still in the ground almost a year later!
I harvested some in late Summer but:
- it was very small,
- it took me ages to clean and prep it,
- by the time I peeled it I had nothing left to eat.
So, I just left it in the ground (all year) wondering if it would ever get to a decent size. It didn't die down over Winter so it's still there. I suppose its not edible now and I should pull it up (I keep procrastinating!).
|Better view of celeriac - a year later - it has finally reached a bigger size!|
|Left: celery that never died over the Winter. Right: celeriac. Behind: chives.|
|Leeks are now starting to grow flower stalks. They're actually really pretty in flower.|
|I noticed a strange looking plant with a thick red stem
in my flower bed - a radish.|
Below tiny radish seedlings more recently sown in a tub with parsley.
|Many veg and flower seeds sown - its just a waiting game now!|
|Above kale and below celery, sown at the the same time. |
Celery is so tiny!
|Potatoes, Maris Peer, earthed up earlier today. This year I'm growing Maris Peer and Pentland Javelin. Pentland Javelin are 1st earlies and were a random purchase so looking forward to seeing how they do. Maris Peer do well every year!|
