Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 09 Apr, Anneliese (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
how do you know if the sweet potatos are ready - mine have been in the ground for 6 months now
Silverbeet (also Swiss Chard or Mangold) 14 Mar, Lesley (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
I was looking for advice on how to cook - some say remove the thick white part before cooking...... but all advice I have is to cook (whether with or without onions and garlic) in MILK. You don't seem to mention that here. I also understand that those who grew up eating this vegetable prefer it with nutmeg. Am just going to prepare -for first time - wish me luck!
Pumpkin 31 Dec, Dave (Spain) (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
Squash/pumpkins are ready usually from november through till feb,depending on when you sowed them.You can freeze cubed,without blanching ...easy!!
Rocket (also Arugula/Rucola) 16 Aug, Addy (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
I grow rocket all year round here in Brisbane, I just keep picking the leaves till the plant goes to seed. To keep growing leaves I break off the budding tips and it grows almost bushy. Broccoli puts out side shoots and more florets after the first main "globe" is cut off.
Cauliflower 07 Jul, Beth (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
I have Cauliflowers that have formed small heads which are visible. I suspect there is a problem as it is too soon for them to be mature. My query is- Will the head keep growing or should I harvest them now. I have covered the heads with outside cauli leaves to stop the sunlight yellowing them.
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 23 Jun, Leslie Reed (United Kingdom - warm/temperate climate)
Great Stuffed Zuchinni Cut lengthwise, hollow out, par boil in hot water for 5 minutes for better taste. Meanwhile take insides and chop into bitesize pieces, saute with chopped onion, garlic, when almost done add in some chopped tomatoes. Can do many variations with Rice and even can add tomato sauce... whatever you like can be creative of just follow recipe. Mix with 1 lb sausage, hamburger or Turkey Burger precooked until done, drain off grease. Put in baking dish and Top with Parmesan Cheese and bake at 350 until cheese browns and Serve YUMMY!
Beans - broad beans, fava beans (also Fava bean) 10 Jun, bella (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
I have sprayed mine with washing up liquid and water, hopefully that will help
