Appreciating a plant can be used in all parts and stages of life, from sprouts to seed heads, and there are many new flavors to discover. Let's take a closer look at our common favorites
If I could personally write a love letter to an object in my garden this year, it would be leek (also known as flowering leek). Both flat-leaved and flowering garlic leeks bring more flavor and texture to dishes than traditional leeks, especially when using flower heads. We recommend using flat leaves when you want to caramel because they contain less water and can burn faster. We can't wait to come in and taste this idea!
From a gardening perspective, these leeks are the perfect ingredients for adding garlic. This plant is a perennial plant that is not susceptible to heat and frost. It has very fragrant flat leaves and delicate white flowers throughout the year, with a unique garlic flavor. Not to mention, you will use flowers to attract bees and butterflies, and provide pest control for surrounding plants, which are vulnerable to unwanted guests such as aphids, mites, and even rabbits.
- Broad bean
Whether you notice it or not, fava beans are working. They seem to appear on every menu, not to mention at the top of market reports, and are expected to become the next big product of plant protein... Broad beans are more delicious than ever before.
Bean paste is also made from broad beans. As a perfect spring snack, it is recommended to harvest broad beans when they are young - the fresh pods are edible and can be lightly mashed, adding just a little salt and pepper to fry.
Aside from the delicious idea of fried food, broad beans are one of the most easily covered crops in gardens. They not only fix nitrogen in the soil, but also improve soil texture, inhibit weeds, maintain moisture, and attract pollinating insects. So consider this dual effect legume used for a rest bed.
This is a very easy plant to grow; Wait until the warm spring and put the seeds directly into the soil. They require less water than other green vegetables, and when harvested young, they are tender, while providing some ruddy pink and purple for your salad mixture.
This powerful plant can also produce a large number of seed heads, which can be placed in cookies and have a very good earthy grain flavor when roasted. These seeds are perfect for cooking, and you can try puffing, baking, or even cooking in broth like grain.
We recommend planting these flowers to obtain colorful tassels (from magenta to rusty orange) that can be harvested from late summer to autumn before the seed heads fully mature, adding architectural and bold colors to your own flower arrangement.
Planting radishes is a simple task. Here are the steps for planting radishes in a garden bed:
Choose a suitable location for growing radishes: radishes require sunny, well drained, and fertile soil. Choose a sunny location on the garden bed and ensure good drainage performance of the bed.
Before planting radishes, you need to prepare the soil. You can add organic fertilizer or compost to the soil to improve nutrients and water retention. Loose soil allows carrots to grow smoothly.
Seeding: Open several straight lines on the soil surface, and sprinkle radish seeds on each straight line. Radish seeds are very small and can be buried about 1 cm deep on the soil surface. When planting, it is necessary to pay attention to the distance between each seed.
Watering: After seeds are sown, sprinkle an appropriate amount of water to keep the soil moist. During the germination stage, care should be taken to avoid soaking the seeds in water.
Management: After the radish sprouts, it is necessary to keep the soil moist and weed on time. Radishes usually take 4 to 8 weeks to mature.
Harvesting: After the radish is ripe, use a hoe or shovel to gently dig out the radish. You can check whether the radish leaves have matured by pulling them out. You can also judge whether the radish is mature by its size. After harvesting, radishes can be cleaned and eaten or stored.
