Last winter harvests

Rooftop gardening
March 21, 2013

On my rooftop many plants sown last autumn are giving the last harvest.

Red carrotsThese are the last carrots: red carrots. They are red-pink on the outside, with a bright white core.

DillLast autumn I also sowed a lot of aromatic herbs, and many of them are bolting. Soon I will harvest the seeds from many of them: dill, coriander, broad leaf mustard, they can be used from the next sowings, but also as spices.

AlexandersAlexanders on the other hand grew slowly, and now is ready for the first harvest.

It has a fresh taste reminiscent of celery, plus a special spicy component. This bunch has enriched a savory pie with eggs and potatoes.

This post joins to Harvest Mondays.
