We grew artichoke for the first time this year, along with some cavolo nero, purple sprouting broccoli, leeks and beetroot (all good, but not so for our cabbage or brussels (sans) sprouts). Right now in the garden we've got tomatoes, basil, eggplant, rocket and beans.
If you ask me, there's nothing better – or tastier – than something you've planted and grown in your own backyard. I love it. More home grown stuff to come.
