Chervil is a new herb to us. I was introduce to it by our local seed-saver group meetings. Chervil belong to the same family as carrot. So, last fall was our first time growing them. Although, I am still not quite sure what type of dish is best to use chervil with. I would really be happy to receive advices regarding this. We had so many seedlings last fall because the seed germination was really good and did not encounter any problem transplanting chervil seedlings. Like coriander, I think it is best to start growing chervil at the end summer away from the heat which usually just make them flower really quickly here in Adelaide plain. For summer, probably will be best growing them in shade with moisture which we plan to try.
I think I read somewhere in a book about herbs that we can enjoy quiche with chervil. I have to borrow that book again because I forgot to copy the recipe.
An attempt of using chervil as a border or confusing pests with its aroma.
A few weeks/months later.
Well, by now I don't think you will be surprise to see how close I grow my vegetables together.
Chervil has grown nicely and plenty available for use.
But I keep on forgetting that we have chervil for use.
So, flower those chervil did when spring came.
After other vegetables were harvested, only savoy cabbage were left for company.
Chervil flower resembles coriander closely.
I did not noticed there was a bug on the flower.
Good or bad bug?
Does chervil seeds are use for cooking as well?
So new to us.
We had at least 15 plants growing last cool season.
Most of the seeds are dried and collected.
So this weekend, we have chervil seeds give-away for 3 gardeners around the world. Our babies will pick the winners randomly from seed sowers of this post.
How was your weekend?
Off to fishing now.
