Finally!… I was able to get into the garden today. As dank and mouldy as everything was I managed to do some tidying up. And while I was rummaging in the undergrowth I found something which made me smile. A Coriander plant (I think you call it Cilantro in the US) that had apparently gone to seed in the Summer was now sporting bunches and bunches of perfectly dried seeds, ready for the harvest. A tiny miracle really.
They’re so intricate with their small ridges and bumpy exterior. Some of them are split but I think that’s okay. They seem pretty dry so I’m saving all of them and hoping for a bumper Coriander patch come next year. Well worth putting my wellies on for!
