Fennel babies...

22 October, 2014

As I have mentioned before I am a lazy gardener. This sometimes makes life harder (no one is going to sow those successive crops for me) but sometimes makes life easier.

When I crop fennel, I never pull the fennel out. I just cut it off at the base. Easier to harvest (no dirty root bits needing further cleaning and chopping in the kitchen), and the bonus being the roots regrow more fennel.

See the fennel babies coming up.

I once kept a fennel plant producing in this manner for over two years. Then I forgot to crop it, or just got sick of fennel, and once the fennel went to seed it gave up the ghost.

Let's see how long I can keep this one going for.
