... is that sometimes you can have too much. And be too enthusiastic in 'plough the fields and scatter' mode. And naive. Goddamnit - the rocket has to go. Just take a look at it - that 10ft high thistle-like growth there on the left. The lesson we have learned is: Don't sow 5 rows of rocket at the same time because it WILL all grow at the same time and you won't be able to eat it all at the same time. And you'll lose any trace of access you had to the middle of the garden so the spinach will go to seed and the lettuces will grow to the size of planets. It's our very own monster of Frankenstein. And good grief does it need to be put out of its misery.
So - the rocket is coming out. MCD will be flogging bags of it at the stationary traffic outside the house courtesy of the gas works and I shall be investigating whether it freezes and then we shall start over. Half a row at a time. So we can eat it like normal people, once or twice a week, no thinking how to incorporate into every dish.
