Wild Rocket Salad: not just the leaves

 Thewild rocket has been available to pick throughout the winter, and now it has started to bolt, but the leaves are still tender and delicious, and there is the added bonus of flowers to give a lunch salad a floral edge:

With bright clear days, we have even had lunch in the garden.

The flowers were picked as they open, and put in a small sealed tub to use over the next couple of days.  They also looked very good strewn over a lovely green soup.

Time to sow another row.....


  1. Mmmm - that looks most appetising Noelle - homegrown beetroot too ?

    1. I wish, but no, we have lovely fresh beetroot at our market or up at the market at The Rocky Mountain Nursery, so fresh one could eat the leaves, but I don't. I don't have sufficient room to grow beetroot, as well as all the other things I want to grow, but I did three years back, and they were very good.
