Well, here’s a true leaf of the week, for like none of the others so far featured, it has leaf in it’s name.
This is a cut and come again version of the celery that you might be used to. But here, instead of eating the long crunchy stalks, we eat the leaves. It looks a bit like flat leaf parsley so you might be forgiven for mistaking it for the herb. Although we won’t forgive you, for its distinct celery taste should have given it away. Also, the leaves are just a bit tougher. I really like harvesting this leaf, you gather up all the pieces into a bunch and chop them off. At the risk of sounding a bit strange, it kind of feels like you are giving the plant a hair cut!
