Of course we went to the garden centre!
Added to my collection now is
salsify - because I have never tasted it but the name reminds me of the Beverley Hill Billies so of course we had to have it even if it does look suspiciously like parsnips
coriander - well with all these curries
hooligan pumpkins - these are mini pumpkins which grow to about 3 inches in diameter - perfect for stuffing and baking or microwaving apparently - they look so cute on the packet and even if they are yuk they will make great Halloween decorations (does that smack of over justification?)
lemongrass - curries
lots of salad leaves - because obviously this year we are going to have a long hot Summer and they will be absolutely essential
borage - essential for long cool drinks throughout the above mentioned long hot summer
Oh and cornflowers and helichrysums.
I think we may have enough stuff to be going on with now but with the tunnel is booked for the 14th so all too many shopping days to fill before then I'm afraid. Maybe we'll get snowed in and I'll be saved from myself
