I wanted to show you how gorgeous my Seakale is at the moment. As a rule I generally don’t let things flower in the vegetable garden unless I’m planning to collect seed from them. And this would have applied to my Seakale too but it ran to seed so fast and the flowers just popped open overnight in the recent heat wave that I literally couldn’t stop it.
I’m glad that I didn’t because the display of flowers is just lovely. They are bold, extremely white and look like, I think, tiny fried eggs. They’re quirky and at the moment brighten up the gloomiest part of the garden.
The downside is that because the plant ran to see so quickly I didn’t get chance to harvest the forced Seakale under the pot. Now that I know its foibles next year I’ll keep a sharper eye on it!
