garden colour and produce
Below is my Chatham Islands forget me not. It took over a year before this plant bloomed, but looking at that intense shade of blue, I think it was worth the wait. I'm going to plant some more.
Self-sown borage and calendulas.
There isn't a lot to eat inour garden at the moment. There is mesclun, of which the red russian kale and the giant red mustard dominate entirely. I've been putting it into salads and stirfries. We need to eat this up most vigorously in the next fortnight, as the tomatoes need to go in its place soon.
Broad beans. Half hearted, interrupted attempts at staking which I must rectify soon.
