Today we have a new and unexpected bloom:
I think this must be part of the bell pepper plant, but I can’t be 100% sure. It’s very pretty though, and so far I have spotted two of these cute little flowers.
The tomatoes are coming on very well, growing nice and strong, bigger than I expected. They are still green, so I am waiting for them to turn a lighter shade of red before snapping some more photos. I can’t wait to try one.
Talking of getting to taste the fruits of one’s labours, I started munching on the salad leaves this week. For lunch one day, I made a sandwich and included a sprinkling of the green leaves. Today, I prepared a salad to go with dinner, and snuck in some of my own lettuce leaves as well. It was delicious.
I have two asides to add to this subject:
- I have discovered some French dressing that is sold in sachets. It is slightly posher than what I would usually go for, but the added benefit of not having to throw old salad dressings out when they are not used up is well worth the extra pennies.
- Mr C enjoyed his salad, but he did accidentally pour some apple and kiwi smoothie on to the leaves. I had placed the bottle there ready for pouring whilst I fetched the glasses, and Mr C thought it was dressing. He said it was actually quite nice though, so that could be a recipe tip for you all.
I am starting to get a little worried about the strawberry plants. I think they need more attention again. Will update next week.
