Chilies and aromatic herbs October harvest

Rooftop gardening
October 15, 2012

I sowed a lot of plants this autumn, and while a lot of summer plants still continue to produce, some of those sown last month are ready to be harvested.

ChiliesPeppers and chilies are still full of ripening pods.
From the left: Cheese peppers, Jimmy Nardello prepared with a delicious beer batter, and two King of the North peppers.

Aromatic herbsAll basil plants are still full large new leaves, especially those born spontaneously from fallen seeds during the summer.
Chives are almost into winter dormancy, but chives garlic is still full of new leaves.
With these ingredients, sunflower seeds and olive oil I made my pesto without garlic.

Mizuna and greensMy greens: komatzuna, pak choi and semposai, sorrel, a few sprigs of purslane and above all a nice bunch of mizuna.
I sowed komatzuna, pak choi, mizuna and semposai last month, now leaves are tender and good to consume fresh: I seasoned with olive oil and chunks of feta for a small but tasty salad.

Chilies and bell peppers: 250g
Cinnamon basil, lettuce leaf basil, lemon basil, chives garlig: 40g
Komatzuna, pak choi, semposai, sorrel, mizuna: 40g
Total 330g (plus nettle, borage and mustard)

This harvest joins to Harvest Mondays.
