Spring onionThis September I sowed some spring onion, and yesterday I added some soil to blanche them. I already talked of onion blanching in the post Ishikura Bunching Onion.

Hamberg parsleyThis is Hamberg parsley, a parsley usually grown for its root, but also to use the leaves as an aromatic herb.

Magenta spreenI sowed some magenta spreen last spring, and now it is born spontaneously in many pots. I'm harvesting it for salads and dips.

Pink CelebrationI sowed again the radish Pink Celebration, an early and tasty variety.

LavenderSurprisingly, I harvested another flower from my small lavender plant.

It's still warm here in Italy, and I'm also harvesting marjoram, chives and even a few leaves of basil and cinnamon basil.

This goes to: Harvest Monday.
