Today I was making a cock-a-leekie type of soup and went out to my raised beds to pull up some leeks. And I found some purple sprouting broccoli!!! I am so thrilled as the young plants were decimated by caterpillars to a skeletal level. I left them in without any hope of them producing anything. They are teeny tiny but when I pick the 4(!) stalks I will savour every mouthful. I'm one of those weird people who LOVES broccoli, it's my favourite veg :-)
And here are my leeks. I'm Scottish, we eat the whole leek not just the white part!!
Washed, chopped and ready to add to my soup
