Growing Gorgeous Garlic

Garlic is one of the most useful, yet one of the most expensive by weight to buy. It's pretty easy to grow and worth the effort to grow a number of garlic plants to have a harvest that will last you up to 3 months.

Bok Choy and Tatsoi Heaven

Bok Choy and Tatsoi are two green veges that are really easy to grow and are very versatile for many dishes. Great as a side dish, boiled or steamed and can be added to stir fries, soups or stews. The new sweet green leaves can go into salads and I have added leaves to quiches and made rice or potato patties with chopped Bok Choy and spring onions that go down a treat!

Groovy Green Beans

Throw them into any stir fry, sauté them with onions, garlic and tomatoes, team them up with snow peas and herbs and you have a delicious main or side with green beans. I sometimes gently fry them as a low cal and tasty alternative to chips. They are delicious cold in a salad teamed with pine nuts, olive oil and peas...very versatile.

I love kale! What is there not to love? They are an all round leafy plant - there when you need a perfect snack with a glass of wine or as a delicious additive to a stew, or salad.
