Previous week harvest were white winter coloured-harvest theme. However, last week there is a dramatic change of colour theme harvest. Last week we got more purple produce harvest. Last week we harvested our most probably last batch of Lebanese eggplants which we deep-fried coated with tempura flour. We also harvested some Giant Purple Mustard, beans, carrots, snow peas, chilies, yellow cherry tomatoes, chinese celery and volunteer nicola potatoes. This year the weather is unusually cooler so I must have sowed our kailan (Chinese broccoli) late than it is supposed to be. So our kailan has shown the sign of bolting and we harvested them as baby kailan. Every Monday, Daphne host Harvest Monday where gardeners all around the world shows what they have harvested each week.
We usually like to stir-fry baby kailan with salted dried mackeral. This is a popular dish in Malaysia and has a place in every restaurant menu. Linking with Wendy's Garden To Table Challenge.
