Is it a plant, is it an alien?

I’ve mentioned before that I’m growing my own salad and vegetables this year.

In keeping with my infiltration of German society, I thought I’d better grow some proper German veg. And what could be more German than having your garden full of kohlrabi?

Well… that’s what I thought until they started to turn into aliens… right there in my vegetable patch! Seriously… some are purple and some are green… but they’ve all got tentacles… or possibly antennae. I can’t sleep at night as I’m expecting them to invade the kitchen any minute. If I don’t post again, you’ll know they got me….

German Mothers’ Day

Tomorrow is German Mothers’ Day. I wonder what my kids are preparing…. I suspect something like this is happening somewhere in the house…

At this time of the year

I’m in danger of losing my house. One of these days I’ll have to take the shears to the foliage, just so I can get in!
