Today a Bromiliad called Aechmea fasciata. It is a tropical plant but was in this garden when we came, in a very sheltered spot in front of a photinia hedge with an olive tree overhanging it. It only gets rain but has formed a big clump, so must be happy.
I have nicknamed this the covid cabbage. It was one of the 9 items I asked for with my shopping. ($3.29 the grower didn't make any money out of that! )I tried weighing it but my kitchen scales stop at 2kg and it was heavier than that. The scales just said ERR. We didn't have any cabbage ready in the garden and I find it keeps so well and is really versatile as a vege. Raw or cooked - stir fry or microwave only. Never boil it. I personally prefer cabbage to sprouts or broccoli for taste.
I will report how long it lasts and how many meals it contributes to.
We do have some seedling ones started but they will be months away.
A dull calm day here with odd skiffy showers. As part of my walk I checked the mail box and found a local paper and a letter, so worth going.
We have too many feijoas - ever heard that before !
