Geoff Wilkinson writes on Wanstead Daily Photo: “Remember ‘Day of the Triffids’, the novel published in 1951 in which tall carnivorous, venomous plants have a crack at taking over the world. That’s what occurred to me when I spotted these Brussels sprouts underneath this fine mesh. I think the mesh is to help keep the frost off them, I thought it made them look like ghosts rising up…. Anyway between Triffids, ghosts and of course Brussels sprouts I don’t think I’ll be getting an allotment any time soon…”
