On a morning when you realise that the Weather Gods have decided to get winter in properly
I was rewarded for trudging up to the veg plot anyway (I was going to fetch a shovel to clear the path, and decided just to see how everything was doing) with suddenly spotting this:
I’d thought my Romanesco had completely scratched this year. They’re only still in the ground because I hadn’t got around to clearing them out and they weren’t particularly in the way. This year seems to have been entirely upside down and backwards, so I suppose Italian vegetables mistaking a Scottish winter for summer is nothing.*
Still when the rest of the veg plot looks like this, I’m not complaining.
*The landlord’s peas were still flowering a couple of days ago. who knows, they might even get some Christmas peas…
