Autumn herbs

Growing aromatic herbs
October 29, 2012

Very satisfied by autumn crops in previous years, this fall I decided to grow many herbs and vegetables.
The sowing of September and October was challenging, but a look at the plants fills me with satisfaction.

DillThis is Dill Hercules, that should be smaller in size but should produce a lot of leaves.

American cressA pot full of american cress: it looks different than garden cress, but its taste is very similar.

ChervilI already harvested a bunch of fresh chervil, and add it to a delicious pumpkin soup.

GreensAnother harvest of my oriental greens, komatsuna, semposai, mizuna and pak choi, perfect for salads and sandwiches.

Pak ChoiPak choi is my favourite oriental green, it's sweet and crisp.

I also harvested a couple of Mulato Isleno chilies, and a King of the North sweet pepper, but I forgot to take any pictures.

Chilies and bell peppers: 140g
Komatzuna, pak choi, semposai, mizuna: 130g
Total 270g

This harvest joins to Harvest Mondays.
