By Mwillis
I have picked the last of my remaining Radicchio (which was not a lot!). To be honest, I had to discard about 90% of each plant, because the outer leaves were very brown and dishevelled. Still, I was able to salvage a quantity sufficient for a salad for the two of us:

We have also had more Brussels Sprouts. We have been getting a batch like this (approx. 250g) about once a week. You have seen these ones before, in last Thursday's post, but since Harvest Monday is a weekly affair I feel it is legitimate to put them in here again.

I am very pleased with the yield from my six plants. They have given us a lot of food.
My harvests at present are looking pretty thin, and I am thinking more about sowing and planting for the new season ahead. At least we are not under two feet of snow like some of our US cousins!
P.S. Not strictly "Harvest Monday" related (and the only thing home-grown in this photo is the decorative sprig of Basil), but I'm sure some readers will want to know how we got on with the Buffalo Mozzarella from Laverstoke Park Farm:

Well it was nice enough, but not sufficiently special to warrant a price-tag of £2.49 and a 40-mile journey!
