Beautiful Veggies - Fennel Life #1

Fennel is great stuff to grow in the garden. The flowers are gorgeous, and insects find it hard to resist.

 

Fresh fennel is good in salads and soups, and the plant is credited with a long list of medicinal and cosmetic properties...

Lots of benefits!
Ray: All that, and smells wonderfully, too, Larry!
Magic flower! Lovely shot, Ray!
Ray: Fennel is lovely stuff, Elizabeth. The variety we grow here doesn't develop a bulb, and we tend to get the plant onto the table when it is still very young.

Pretty AND tasty!
Ray: It is good stuff, Bonnie. I tend to deliberately walk past the garden several times each day just so I can get a whiff of its wonderful aroma.

I have never smelt fennel growing, Ray; and I had no idea of its medicinal uses
Ray: It is good in the garden, Lisl...looks good when growing and when flowering, and the aroma is a delight.

Fennel is said to be one of the best of green veggies.

I love this point of view, Ray. Thank you for adding the list of benefits...
Ray: It is good stuff, Astrid.
Oh, FENNEL. It has the taste of anise in it and I love it. I need to find some more recipes for it! Thanks for the reminder, Ray!
Ray: Worth re-acquainting yourself with this lovely stuff, Ginnie.

Looks like fennel can help you live forever!
Ray: Indeed, Chris...and, your breath will smell sweet even after your teeth fall out!
Bonjour Ray
J'aime beaucoup le fenouil ..j'aime son gout anisé
Bonne journée
Ray: C'est une herbe merveilleuse, Claudine, avec son goût et son arôme mémorables.

I use fennel with fish. Its good to know that I can now stand in a nuclear reactor without any harmful effects.
Ray: In fact, Alan, Ms Tripod Carrier could stand next to you in that nuc reactor and feel even better,
I shall have to start using it
Ray: Whip out to the greengrocer and grab a bunch immediately, Bill.

Fenchel in German- and I know it is a a very healthy plant, I like to drink Fencheltee.
Ray: Fenchel is a fine word, Philine.

Reduces the symptoms of flatulence - maybe it works like a silencer.
Ray: Builds baffles in your intestinal tubes, Louis, so you remain whisper quiet even after a meal of baked beans and fennel on toast.
What an interesting post, I shall have to show Maureen, the Blood Pressure benefits would help both of us for sure.
Ray: Fennel looks attractive in the garden, too, Brian.
In some Indian cultures fennel seeds are used for bad breath.
Ray: I first encountered the after-meal chewing of fennel seeds in India, Mary, but have now observed it in numerous countries.
If it helps you breathe better,fart less and think sharper it must class as super food. .
Ray: I believe some would categorise it thus, Martin.

really nice macro and a great rundown of fennel
Ray: Thank you, Sherri.
I put fennel seeds in the bread I make smile
Ray: Eating your way to a flatulence remedy, Tom...a novel approach.
beautifully done, Ray. i like the compact looking buds.
Ray: The flowers are pretty, Ayush, but you have to get in close to appreciate this.
