We have had some lovely and much needed rain this week and the sun has only made rare and brief appearances. This morning I dodged the showers and went to the nearby farmers' market. Just look what I brought home.
The colours in the golden beetroot and the rainbow carrots are amazing. Who needs sun when the kitchen is glowing with these gorgeous vegetables.
I can feel a big vegetable bake coming up.
I will cook the sweet little baby turnips in boiling water for a few minutes then toss them in a pan with butter, oil and brown sugar to caramelise them.
As if all these weren't enough of a treat, I spoiled myself with a bunch of ornamental cabbages which complement the colours in my little quilt.
All in all a good, although slightly damp, morning.
