Hungry Gap

It's now the period of the year known as the 'hungry gap', hence a variety of kale known by the same name. Any type will do: This is Dwarf Green Curled and a packet of 400 seeds cost 25p. Even better, it grows back when you harvest it, as long as you leave a few leaves on. There's been enough to eat several times a week and made trips to the allotment worthwhile.

Fridge Magnet

Spotted in the road at the back of the City Academy on the way back from the pub. Fridge magnet? Or Fridge magnate? Who else would dump ten fridges but a fridge magnate or ex-fridge magnate.
