Having run out of jars for the kimchi I made last Sunday, I had to get a bit creative with what was in my food cupboard this afternoon. I needn’t have bothered, though, as the cabbage had developed a mound which I don’t think was meant to be there.
Shame about losing half my one and only decent cabbage this year to the bokashi bin but this hardly mattered once I had discovered the joys of fuchsia berries.
Talking of berries, I also did a bit more foraging today behind our house. The rose hips have turned a lovely shade of red and so they should make for an excellent cordial. I’m thinking of doing an experiment with chilli, although there won’t be any of my own, having just lost the last of them, too, in the white fur that would have been kimchi.
So, what have flowers got to do with today’s title? Well, not a lot really but ‘flops and flowers’ had a better ring to it than ‘mould and berries’. Besides, I have eaten some nasturtium flowers with the fuchsia berries, so I’m not taking too much poetic licence.
