The other day, I finally ate the spaghetti squash I grew. It had been sitting on the bench, smooth and yellow, for weeks. Okay, I only got one from the vine, which doesn’t say much for my spaghetti-squash-growing skills, but it was delicious! So I’ve just planted a few more new seeds.
I did manage a much better crop of ‘Magic Dwarf Broccoli’. This was my first real broccoli success. Last time the bugs had a lovely meal instead. I steamed fresh heads of broccoli to eat with salmon and chicken. Then I spotted the idea for broccoli pesto. Best thing ever!
There’s a few recipes about. I went for a good dose of olive oil, pepper, salt, pine nuts and garlic with my remaining broccoli heads. After whizzing it up, it made a lovely, sharp pesto.
I’m now trying to grow Romanesco. I have spotted a tiny head that might be the Romanesco… or did I plant cauliflower and can’t remember now? Oops.
I’m blocking a pair of socks right now and look, another sock cast on already!
There will be no second sock syndrome with this one… it, ah, is the second sock. I finished the first one about a year ago. Oops.
