    Tomorrow (in Australia) Thursday 21 June, marks the Winter Solstice. That means that in the Northern Hemisphere it is the Summer Solstice. I looked back into my vast archives to see what I had written about Solstices and here's what I came up with, from seven years ago today: London, 20 June, 2005 "Last night the hot sun was blazing through the windows of my room at 10.15pm, and still had a while to go before it went over the horizon. This morning it was light at 3.45am. I found out that...

    It’s lovely to site here at my desk and look out over the cow pasture some days. Every so often one of the retired oxen or cows will slowly walk by (they always look over at us in case we have leftovers or extra veggies for them). I can see a rainstorm sweeping in across the pasture, or hear the wind in the trees outside. It’s very relaxing and centering to be this close to the real world instead of the city. Unfortunately, we’re trying to provide a high-tech service from our low-tech corner...

    I've planted some hardy winter/spring brassica crops. The seeds of brassicas all look like mustard seeds, and are relatively easy to grow. This is Tuscan Cabbage, sometimes known as Cavolo Nero.

It does not form a head, and its crinkled matt deep green leaves with a white stem and a bitter cabbage flavour are best sauteed, or braised or in soups. Hopefully my crop will grow healthily like this. I also have some Kale...
