I will also grow a few usuals, namely lettuce, kale and cherry tomatoes. We will be receiving a CSA box from Our Little Farm again this year, so these plants are just in case I want an extra few leaves of greenery fresh from the backyard during the week. I probably won't need it though as the CSA box is more than enough to satisfy!
The other plant I am excited to try this year is Chufa aka tigernuts or ground almonds. I ordered these seeds through Seeds of Diversity from Co-op Tournesol. These are tubers that grow under a grass-like plant and taste somewhat like almonds - apparently. I have never tried them so this really is an experiment!
What are you growing this year? Any new and unusual plants or varieties?
