Last weekend I bought two pots of Roscoea scillifolia pink form at £3 each. Bargain. Actually even bigger bargain when I realised there was seed pods in one. One exploded yesterday and I planted them in the tray I have R. cautleyoides seedlings coming up (other end of tray. The blackbird managed to kick all the carefully spaced seeds to one end, where they germinated)
Nut, would you like the seeds off the next pod to explode?
Harvest festival here. So much fruit and veg, I'm having to get creative.
Courgette fritters with tomato,onion and basil salad, and a yoghurt/mint/cucumber dip(sort of tzatziki without the garlic)
followed by roast potatoes, beans , and steak.
followed by a fruity pudding of some sort.
Worcester apples and the last of the victoria plums will have to come off this afternoon. Not as many as last year, but individual apples are bigger, and very juicy. Blackberries ready. A couple of strawberries in the polytunnel that the blackbird hasn't found,
We had the first sweetcorn yesterday, as reward for all the hedge cutting. Plain boiled with salt and butter. Can't beat it.
Nice and warm out there. I have some pic to post of sedums, but need to wait till OH has done on the big computer.
