Pizza greens 1st May 2020

Presenting yesterdays greens used on a veggie 100% whole grain barley/spelt/rye sourdough pizza were:
Hablitzia tamnoides (Caucasian spinach /stjernemelde) (eaten now every day since the beginning of March and there’s more to harvest now than at any time since I started!) 
Crambe maritima (sea kale / strandkål)
Allium ursinum (ramsons / ramsløk)
Levisticum officinale (lovage / løpstikke) (I call blanched lovage “spring celery” as it’s not that much stronger than celery…and much easier to grow than celery organically)
Ligularia fischeri (Gomchwi; Fischer’s Ligularia / Koreansk nøkketunge) (King of the Sannamul: see http://www.edimentals.com/blog/?page_id=3114)
Rumex patientia (Patience dock / Hagesyre)
Bistorta officinalis (Bistort / Ormerot)

Day 4 of the Permaveggies course and Ligularia wraps!

This was an unscheduled course day for me, my helper Lorna and Berit the camper,  as it was a national holiday in Norway and Christian Odberger gave us a short course in grafting and I now have 6 or so new varieties of apples on a seed propagated apple.  See also http://www.edimentals.com/blog/?p=4627

This is a slide I’ve been using recently of my favourite perennial vegetable that didn’t make it into my book as I discovered it too late, Ligularia fischeri (gomchwi), an important shade tolerant vegetable in Korea… The pictures to the left and right are from the website of a Ligularia farm in Korea! See more about this amazing plant here: http://www.edimentals.com/blog/?page_id=3114

We decided to try Ligularia fischeri wraps (the wrap leaves are eaten in Korea, unlike some other countries) and all agreed that it was delicious!

I sympathise with these guys as I have the same edimental-collectomania ;) They went away with some 40 different plants!
