An aborted attempt to see some Chelsea Fringe gardens at Broadgate Circle near Liverpool Street revealed some unexpected delights instead.
I’ve also seen examples of Tom Hare’s work at Wisley. If you go there look out for the kohl rabi 🙂
Now here’s the stuff of childhood: a pomegranate – halved and using a pin to extract each single piece of the fruit inside. No thoughts of health and safety then!
I think it’s quite rare to see them on sale as a fruit these days: I find it’s mostly seen as a bottled juice as that’s a trendy ‘superfood’.
Russet Apples and boxes of oranges complete with leaves at our local farm shop: just how I remember them from my childhood.
A few years ago we visited the orchard in Somerset where these apples have come from (Charlton) on our way back from a November holiday in Cornwall. It was a magical place and they grow a wide variety of heritage apples. I tried Gloster69 and Orleans Reinette for the first time: they were wonderful.
