Regular readers of my blog will know only too well how eager I am to harvest the first of my Sprouting Broccoli (surely the most-photographed plants on the planet!)
Well my latest attempt to convince myself that the broccoli is nearly ready to eat revolve around making them LOOK bigger. See what you think of these:-
Firstly, in "normal" size. (These are the main heads of the plants, not the side-shoots.)
And then "zoomed":
So what do you think? Do they look more appetising in large scale, or not?
P.S. Lots of readers asked for Jane's recipe for that bread with thyme and juniper. She has put the recipe in to a comment on my original post http://marksvegplot.blogspot.com/2011/02/cooking-borlotti.html If any of you have a go at making it, please let us know how it turns out.
P.P.S. If you like the sound of Jane's recipe, you will probably be interested to read about her collection of cookery books, which is described today in a post on her own blog - http://www.competitiongrapevine.blogspot.com/
