|Oh dear, sprouts|

|Cabbages trying to re-srout|
On a plus note, the lettuces are growing well, some carrots are holding their own and mini beets are showing growth. Even the chives have not given up completely, how mad is that?
|You can't see them but the onions and garlic are growing|
The roses that were still trying to flower before Christmas have mummified buds....full of sog! And if you dare to walk on the garden, well, it's soggy and a foot of mud will come in with you, ready to make you slip and hurt yourself.

|First ever pitta bread. So easy and I don't know why I have not made them before|
|With home made coleslaw, a sprinkle of cheese and some ham for Dave|
