And so, to another week...
Some geese flying by, just as the sun dips below the horizon,
and so another day comes to a close
I've done nothing to either of these photos, so the difference in the colours is totally natural. The photos were taken only minutes apart, but once the sun went down, the oranges and reds went to pinks and purples.
And talking of colours....
Red! We have lots of red in the greenhouse just now!
Greens, oranges and reds. Lovely.
On Saturday, whilst the Builder was doing some clearing in the garage, I headed to the plot. I showed you in previous posts the Romanesco and the Cauliflower that was harvested. I sowed more seed in pots, just as I was harvesting the others, and I planted the seedlings on Saturday.
I have no idea whether this will come to anything. It seems far too late in the year to be planting these brassicas, but it seemed too early to have so much empty space in the cage. I turned the soil, fertilised it, and planted. Time will tell ...
See the Brussel Sprouts growing up the stalk? Isn't this so cool (to borrow a phrase from my kids!).
The Brussel Sprouts plants are huge, and some of the sprouts will be ready soon.
I can't say they're my favourite vegetable: my favourite way of eating them is to par-boil them, and then stir-fry them in butter along with some bacon.
I do like to add calories to my greens, you know.
The Swedes are coming on, underneath all that leaf?... leafage?... leafery? Anyway, underneath the green stuff, the Swedes are growing.
Instead of broccoli, we plant Calabrese. It's like broccoli, but when you cut the centre spear, the side shoots grow florets. However, last year, once we cut the centre head, we really got very little from the side shoots, and so, I got a bit of a shock when I went into Cage 1 on Saturday to find about a dozen plants like this...
Lots and lots of large florets, all ready for use.
Isn't the variety in God's creation amazing.
It's like...Wow... Ah-maz-ing!
(You know who you are!!)
