It tasted great!! One of my favourite vegetables.
The first pickings of purple sprouting broccoli hit the plate this week. And some late leeks that have enjoyed a week of sunshine and seem to have put on a final burst. Can't quite believe the broccoli survived the blasting of this last Winter. It takes months to grow, sees out the coldest months.
As always, the birds have had a good attempt at getting to it first. I'm sure the crows have been trampolining on the cages we built as all the posts are leaning at odd angles, like a wonky gymnasium. Some of the supports are swooping down low as if the call went out for every pigeon in town to come and sit in a row to see if it would help them peck closer to the flowers.
Anyway, they didn't, although they've eaten all chard and I don't know if I've rescued it soon enough. Another cage. We'll see how it goes.
Remember to eat your greens!
