A day of definitely first world problems

 Had to carefully check that yet another hot day would be windless or if anything stirred it would be northerly otherwise one flap of the sheets would wipe out the 7 foot high delphiniums that have grown to close to the path.

My husband fed this bed with gromore this spring and the continuous May rains has made everything grow magnificently.

Second problem of the day was how to cook more cauliflower. The problem with grow your own can be gluts. Last week it was 8 broccoli. This week it was in  6 cauliflower. Quick G9oogle gave me an idea for cauliflower and potato curry with boiled eggs.  Yummy and filling lunch. And a change from cauliflower cheese. Much needed after a morning of grass cutting over our acre back garden. Think I have sun burn on the back of my neck!

  1. Your curry looks wonderful. I usually freeze gluts. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a complete disaster.

    Love how tall your delphiniums are.

    God bless.

    1. Good idea. We have gradually reduced a lot of our growing especially as visitors are now a rarity.

  4. I have never had a glut as my veggie garden is rather small - except maybe rhubarb but have lots of friends who will come and pick it!
