This time of year is the hungry gap.

NZ Gardener - - LETTERS -

There’s plenty to pick and sow but there’s still not much to har­vest! Throw baby nas­tur­tium leaves, chick­weed, sor­rel, onion weed, cal­en­dula petals, blue bor­age and heart­sease pan­sies into sal­ads (in mod­er­a­tion…the flavours can be strong), or try eat­ing pea shoots like microgreens, or steam­ing or stir­fry­ing the tops of your broad beans. Or start microgreens, which will be up in days, or mesclun salad mix, which only takes a few weeks to reach an ed­i­ble size. That will help tide you over un­til your other crops are ready to eat.
