Well, no way is this Fizz kale plant going to get eaten with what looks like a giant flower about to emerge. I have no idea why this one is so large while the others are all so much smaller but it sure looks like it’s about to put on a show.
Picked the last of the pot marigold flowers yesterday and poured boiling water over the petals to make a tea to help sooth sore eyes. Noticed the borage still has some flowers showing must try eating those – friends say they taste like oysters!
Finally, I can’t even begin to think about the work that needs to be done on this veggie plot. Spent so much time in the garden over the rest of the year that the house has been neglected – so the garden needs to be neglected to catch up indoors! I went to pick some carrots this morning but something had beaten me too it. Lovely carrot leaves but only a top ring of carrot left. Well, you’ve got to share with nature. If they’re going to feed the short tailed voles that will keep my long-eared owl roost happy!
