Rain & Cold
A jug of Tete a Tete miniature daffodils with Euphorbia robbiae …
And because it’s rained a lot I felt free to pick some Crocus ‘Ruby Giant’ which is very pretty with its bright orange stamens and green and white striped leaves.
And because it was too wet to garden I roasted sweet potatoes, red and green peppers, aubergine, un-peeled garlic and red onions in olive oil. It took 10 mins to prepare and 50 mins to cook at 210 C and I then added steamed purple sprouting broccoli and chopped parsley from the allotment. It was excellent with foil-wrapped sea bass cooked at the same time for 15 minutes. There were enough roasted vegetables over to add to a pizza with mozzarella the following day.
I’d read about Jiffy 7’s for sowing seeds but had never used them but I’m inspired to do so having read a Sally Nex blog kitchengarden and now a batch are on their way.
And this morning the pop up greenhouse went up and the large heated propagator is ready to go.
