Latest post from MARKSVEGPLOT – a blog about food and gardening in England”

Until the last couple of days we have only had one frosty morning during the Autumn. Now however, it has turned very cold. This has meant some great opportunities for “frost photography”! It’s not as easy as you might imagine, since with a covering of frost crystals plants reflect light in lots of strange ways. I offer you here a selection of my photos, mostly of Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Brussels Sprout plants.

From where I sit in our Living Room I can look out onto the garden, and at this time of year I can tell roughly what the temperature is, just by looking at the brassica plants. When it is really cold they “huddle up” with their leaves pointing downwards in an inverted V shape, but when it warms up you can almost hear them go “aaaahh”; the leaves go back up again and the plant takes on a sort of T shape!
