'What's this, mummy? What's this?' 'Why, that's perpetual spinach, darling' (pause for proud moment - yes, I can identify that mystery green leaf, even though I haven't been here for an eternity)
I was absolutely amazed at how much is still growing away there:
I think this is broccoli of some sort. Or it could be a cabbage. I'm not so proud of myself now. It's definitely a brassica of some sort
('Look at may waife's brassicas'... Name that film. Extra points for this one, it's tricky)
Okay, this one's another brassica. Cavolo nero? Anyone?
I know this one! Yay. This is definitely blackcurrants.
Right, this isn't a brassica and it isn't a currant, I can say that with certainty. It's a leek. Or it may be garlic. It's oniony, whatever.
And obviously the trusty old rhubarb is sprouting away already:
Crikey, we still haven't eaten our way through all of last year's rhubarb crop - I'd better get on with it or we'll be disappearing under some sort of pink-stalked mountain.
Crumble, anyone? x
PS - thank you, you lovely lot, for your comments on my last post - it's so great to know you're all still out there - I really do appreciate your words and have been quietly reading all your blogs in my absence, even though I'm not always very good at commenting x
