picked this week

actual leek-sized leeks this week - cooked with smoked haddock, then mashed into baked potato, sprinkled with cheese and baked. need to think about clearing them for space but some are starting to bolt.

first rhubarb of the year.
purple sprouting broccoli still cropping well. loads of salad leaves - lettuce, rocket, spinach


  1. are you going to make your famous rhubarb and ginger jam?

  2. may well be jam making. had a little panic about frost being forecast and so have picked most of the thick stems of rhubarb. will have to find something to do with them else they'll just be eaten dipped in sugar.
