Walked out into the garden after last night's rain, and there it is!
We've planted these before, but they've never really panned out. The leaves cover up the fruit, so you don't see it until it bursts out. As for picking, I imagine you just let it sit there until it is ready to flower, like you do with broccoli.
Look into the plant cavity and you see another one, waiting to get big enough to burst out.
It's one of those good years. Maybe it's the weather, but maybe all that compost Plotnik keeps digging into the ground each winter is finally paying off. Lemons. Avocados even! All this parsley.
And weve never had alstroalmerias like this year. Show 'em to you tomorrow.
