BRK Day 10

Glad you liked it Inge! I didn't realize it was died with madder (I had to look up what that is). Super cool!

Funny that you knew I would choose the red/pink one, I guess you've gotten to know me pretty well through my blog haha

if it’s really a lofthouse maxima, closer to a buttercup. but - such a little guy! seems like trying to get a bit more nitrogen into the hugel in the shorter term would sure help out productivity!

Yummie, turnips!
Where I live turnips (called 'rapen' or 'raapjes' here) are seldom seen in stores. They are considered old-fashioned (or 'forgotten vegetables'). That's why I bought seeds to grow them in my garden.
 
You'll find me in my office. I'll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
