The past two days I have been harvesting seeds. Sunflowers yesterday which were earmarked for the poultry and today fennel.

The fennel seeds are being shared between us and the birds.Not all of the poultry like them but those that do tuck in and make up for those that do not. Grace, Hope and I have been snacking on them today too. We all like the liquorice/aniseed taste. Whatever is left will go into the spice jar for use in cooking until the next batch are ready to harvest.

Slowly but surely I am getting the garden back in order. Cool season crops planted in spots as they become vacant and weeding, weeding, weeding.

Yummy - I love fennel too. they always serve the seeds in Indian restaurants - it is supposed to sweeten the breath and aid digestion.
