The yellow riff this week started on Monday last when I noticed the grellos (turnip tops/turnip greens)I'd sown in August were flowering and setting seed. I cut a spray for the vase - taking vegetables in the flower garden a step further.
By the end of the week the pigeons were fast demolishing the crop and everything else unprotected but I wasn't too bothered as it left less to clear up. I didn't miss the crop as it was too bitter. I think I'll try sowing it later this year - mid September maybe. And if it's still not as tasty as my kales then it's not getting a third chance.
The dwarf narcissus and the crocus, below, were trampled by the dog on one of his early morning 'mads' in the garden, racing out the door with a banshee howl that's sure to grate on the neighbours. So I didn't mind cutting these to bring indoors.
