Oo, oo, oo, oooh!

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I didn’t think the Brussel Sprouts were going to amount to anything, but on closer inspection tonight (glass of wine in hand) I noticed these little nubs that look about the size of a pea forming on the stalk. Not having grown B/Sprouts before, I am not really sure, but I reckon they may be baby sprouts. This made me very excited, I love surprises and especially love ones that come on things I have grown from seed. What’s your verdict? Baby Sprouts or not??? Photo was taken with my phone which I discovered had gunk over the lens so its a bit fuzzy.

The next lovely surprise I got was while cutting some broccoli florets, I thought I’d pull a parsnip seedling to see how/if they were progressing. I love parsnip and haven’t had a lot of success over the years, but these look like they are going to be sensational. Straight, clean, not knobbly and taste like parsnip. Happy, happy happy!

Ooo, look at this daffodil!

When my sister moved she collected a load of bulbs of various varieties and I was lucky enough to score some.  Wasn’t sure what they were, just stuck them in randomly throughout the garden. This beautiful daffodil greeted us tonight and I must say it made my day! I did clean my phone camera lens after this too! Spring is definitely starting to shine through.20140819_164859
