Kitchen Garden and Vegetables

I have my seed potatoes on the window sill and you can see their eyes emerging everyday a little bit more.
The manure heap has been spread on a lot of the plots.
The garlic from the local supermarket was planted at the weekend in the kitchen garden. I started it of in the greenhouse first, it is an experiment. I went to use it for a bolognaise sauce to find it had already sprouted so I thought I would give it a go to see if it would grow. The kale is still growing strong and although the family are not big fans. I always add small amounts into casseroles and pies. It is lovely if shredded up small in an omelette. Any more recipes would be much appreciated and greatly received. The chickens adore it and it is quite funny to watch them if you hold it in the air they jump for it. I do believe it has all the best nutrients and they say birds and animals know what is good for them.
The purple sprouting broccoli is just about ready and is so tasty we even eat it raw. It has a nutty flavour and looks so pretty.
