Broccoli All Tucked Up

We’ve had some snow at mtp (hooray!). Not a whole lot but enough to get me worried about my Broccoli. So last night I threw a fleece over them. This morning it was like waking up to the three spirits out of A Christmas Carol. A bit spooky!

Underneath their blanket though they’re bearing it well. A little droopy but nothing some winter sun won’t fix. Come on Broccoli!

    I just wanted to say HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
    I realised this morning when my mail came in and I saw I had an email from you how much I enjoy what you write.
    You really lift me with your photos and stories, so thanks and keep it up.

    We didn’t get to our broccoli in time to give them TLC. The ones in the brassica cage didn’t get snowed on, because the mesh was fine enough to hold up the snow, but the ‘overflow’ crop in the open ground hve been sitting under a blanket of snow for the past few days – I hope they are going to be okay.

    Was I supposed to cover mine up? :-)

    Haunted by spectral broccoli — gee, a lot of people would hate that, including my children!

    Hoping you have had a lovely Christmas…
