I am now officially living in Glasgow and the Mighty Kitchen Garden belongs to a nice man named Tom. It has been a strange month. I don't have a garden space in my new city flat, so I am going to have to get creative with my planting. I see window-boxes and a sill full of microgreens in my future...
In the meantime though, I just needed something alive to keep us company here. As any new arrivals to a city (whose belongings will be on a ship for two months), this weekend saw the requisite trip to Ikea. While there, I spotted a bunch of lovely, blooming Phalaenopsis available for sale. Just the thing for our new bathroom and to add a little greenery to these dark December days. So here it is, the newest addition to the Wee Kitchen Garden.

|The last ripe San Marzano tomatoes, ready for a slow-roasting.|
Things have been quite quiet around here, haven't they? Since I last reported that chanterelles had arrived (and they were delicious!), we've hosted Thanksgiving for 14 adults and a two-year-old, gone to Scotland and back, found a place to live, and are attempting to pack up our lives in the next few days. Yeehaw.
Some gardeny events have happened, too. I slow-roasted the last of the ripe garden tomatoes, made a caramelized red onion relish, and found pineapple guavas growing on the trees! A grand total of three pineapple guavas but we're calling that a WIN since the trees are less than a year old. I'll tell you more about them soon.
