Well winter countdown counters can say what they like, but the cold has most definitely lost its grip in Brisbane...So much so, that I, a great one for living on the edge, went to work for once not only without my heater, but also without a jumper.
Yep, that's me, spontaneous, carefree and unpredictable. You can't predict me.
Anyway, blather once again aside, during the day here it is starting To Get Hot. And of course, it's only going to get hotter. Much hotter. Scorchingly hot in fact. Unbelievably scorching hot to the point where the radio broadcasts warnings as to how long you can spend outside before you start to burn.
Around 30 seconds for my pasty limbs.
Having not at all managed to put blather aside back there, I will now come to the point: I have to tell you how fabulous this lovely little asian green is before it is fried out of its bed.
Tatsoi. It is fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. It takes no time at all to grow from seed to seedling, it copes marvelously well without being watered every day, and it tastes wonderful. I have around 30 plants which have kept me in salad greens for months now.
Tatsoi, you are my new favourite in the garden. May you not bolt for months to come.
