Finally the fennel is ready so it went into the basket for dinner last night. It was roasted along with one of the last Khol Rabi. I have not grown fennel before and now know that I need to grow a lot more as it seems to have good resistance to pests and when you eat a few bulbs at a time it does not go far.
The lavender came off some pruning's and will be hung to dry behind the fire with a few others I have already picked.
The chickens have picked back up in the laying department so I will back to trading eggs for fish and other goodies in the near future.
