Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 168: Sowing brassicas & flowers.

Before some of the summer crops have even been sown I’m turning my attention to my next winter garden and getting brassicas sown……and then a few flowers for a pop of colour this summer. I’m giving a bit of attention to my perennial kale (Taunton Deane) but not sure if I’m doing the right thing as I have never grown one before……

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden: December Garden Tour (2018).

It definitely feels like Winter has arrived. Each visit to the garden sees a little bit more of it tucked up until the Spring…..but there’s still plenty of green stuff to enjoy and food a-plenty growing…..and time to get on with some maintenance jobs and tinkering. It’s a wonderful time of year when everything slows down and we get a chance to slow down too and simply breathe it all in….

Vivi’s Kitchen Garden 132: Perennial Kale (Taunton Deane) & other brassicas.

I was very kindly gifted a perennial kale recently – ‘Taunton Deane’. It should keep me in lovely kale leaves for years to come. Finally I made time to plant it in my garden and whilst there tend to my other brassicas. The sight of all their beautiful green growth at this time of year is marvelous and I can’t wait to start chomping on all those lovely leaves.
