The Vegetable Orchestra!

We want to share with you this incredible edible orchestra!

 

Just take a look at 1 minute 38 seconds in, at the cucumber and red pepper trumpet!

Though we really aren’t sure what they do with the cabbage….

… actually, we might go into the kitchen now and find out…


Okay, the cabbage was a disappointment. But the cauliflower sounded great!

Attempts at a #vegetable #orchestra Needs more rhythm.

So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space?
