Tonight I ate the first fruits, or in fact salad, of my labours. It turns out that a vegetable garden is very handy indeed when your fridge is empty and you can’t be bothered to go shopping. Despite losing a number of rucola/rocket plants to the cats’ overenthusiastic digging, enough remains for a few meals yet. As for the taste – definitely superior to that on offer at the supermarket (even Rasha seems to think so!)
Other vegetable news – the first signs of beans are appearing, and the fennel is also putting a look in, with the largest bulb being about 1.5 inches long. The potatoes are growing apace, and the onions and carrots are making good progress.
