1 Another gift from our lovely neighbour was a Kohlrabi which we had never eaten before. What a beautiful, purple sputnik of a vegetable – and it tasted good too! The name literally translates as ‘cabbage turnip’! I steamed it in small chunks and served it in a Béchamel sauce with some medallions of pork tenderloin (from a friend’s happy pigs) and mushrooms.
2 Our blue Agapanthus are getting ready to open. We just need some more sunshine….
3 In the middle border we now have red Lucifer Crocosmia, Gerbe D’Or, the pale golden one and Verbena Bonariensis, light purple – and I just love the possibly crazy colour combination.
