Tis the Season
Mid winter. The lettuces are flourishing, the leeks are trying hard, rocket is growing to the sky and the weeds are lovin' it.
Those are nasturtiums in the rear. Some of the leaves are as big as dinner plates. Were, as big as dinner plates. Last week's icy weather burnt a lot of them.
The lettuces and leeks survived. We've eaten a few of those lettuces now and the leeks have filled out a bit. I also did some weeding
The front garden is still green. There is rocket in a pot which has grown skywards. I peel off the lower leaves. It's a really spicy rocket. The red chillies are more fiery than spicy.
In this jumble is also a pot with lettuces and onions. They survived too and are ready for picking.
Vegetables in season. I'm cooking artichokes with carrots and peas in an egg and lemon sauce.
