Such A Shame

I thought I'd start with a nice photo of a branch of Redcurrant tomatoes.
And now a tasty pan of lovely fresh veg cooking.
Mmm, fried tomatoes, onions and garlic, with a dash of peri peri sauce. Add a pile of chopped chard and a Granovita veggie pepperoni and finally add fried chopped courgette. An adaptation on this recipe on YumUniverse.
So, here come the reasons for the title track...
First we found our globe artichoke had snapped off :-( We only planted up a tiny seedling earlier this year - we bought it at the HAHA plant sale.
Next, we noticed our Lark sweetcorn at an unusual angle, but the roots are still in the ground, so we should still be able to start harvesting delicious cobs this weekend.
But... our Glass Gem may not survive :-( Lots of stems have snapped. They were just too tall and spindly to survive Storm Aileen.
We briefly tried to help it back up and this weekend I'll try to secure the healthy looking ones but it looks very unhappy and as the cobs are only just forming it may not recover - such a shame!
Thank you Talk Talk for providing a suitable title...

  2. It really is a shame for those veggies, but the tomatoes and the fresh veg frying surely make up for it! I also love your new background, it looks so good!

  4. We are having problems that mean we can't get to our plot at the moment so we are hoping that our sweet corn hangs on for a while.
