Lunch has been rocket powered: spicy salad filling from my raised bed.
This batch is a bonus. Last year’s rocket bolted quickly. To my surprise, plants appeared in early March this year. At first, I assumed they’d survived the winter but later realised the rocket had self-seeded.
Around late March I took a bunch; sniffed that unmistakable peppery smell; and, had a tentative taste. Yep, rocket.
Sandwiches to the stars!
