No this post is not an ode to all things Phil Collins, far from it, unless he is a fan of broccoli grown in adverse conditions. You may remember earlier posts about my broccoli trial. I don't mean the purple sprouting broccoli, I mean the impulse bought early green broccoli thingo. Well in my infinite wisdom I introduced him to his good friend Mr Snowpea and Mr Snowpea's trellis.
Unfortunately the trellis severely restricted the movement of Mr Broccoli and I thought he would never produce anything edible.
Yet look what I found the other day - a little head growing!
I also added lettuce to this crowded but diverse pot. I keep using so much lettuce in my salads that it is now growing in five pots!
Broccoli, lettuce, snow peas and more - it looks like it is going to be a great harvest in early winter!
