At last!!

Well 12 months after it was sown the very late purple sprouting broccoli has finally born fruit. Was it worth waiting for? I would say yes for two reasons, great flavour and it’s come in at a time when there is nothing else coming off the plot. I thought 12 months effort was worth a couple of photos. And I’ve warned Rach that with half a dozen plants PSB will feature heavily on our dinner menu for a while!

What a glorious weekend it was. Here’s my little helper watering the daffs for me. We had friends round on Saturday night who are vegetarian and I cooked the starter, stuffed Romano peppers with baby plum tomatoes, mozarella, puy lentils and basil, and the main of butternut squash, goats cheese and spinach rissotto (both Waitrose recipe cards). Rach weighed in with a James Martin Sticky Toffee Pudding, not very Italian but very, very yummy indeed! On Sunday we had our first BBQ of the season and spent ages chilling out in the garden which was perfect. Hope you all enjoyed the weekend whatever you got up to.

Another artichoke recipe…………

Another Jersuslem Artichoke recipe I’ll be trying out soon. Not sure about the nettles though!
