I tried to find the garden’s best side to take today but there wasn’t one ! The sky was on low wattage and the plants are only a few leaves short of being sadder than a needleless, tinsel- stripped Christmas Tree on Twelfth Night. And if that wasn’t injury enough, I had to garden in a cagoule…. hood up !
But through the gloom, the gifts keep coming, 6kg this week – and one courgette ! There maybe another on the way but then, that maybe that. I will need to take a courgette masterclass next year if ratatouille is ever to be part of my repertoire !
There are still some ‘big’ varieties yet to ripen but this week Snowberry joined the ripe roll call.
