There are tomatoes growing on a balcony on the 2nd floor!
Of all the possible answers to the question ‘what new with your office?’ that was the response I was least prepared for. ICL have a bounty crop sprouting from their own grow bags with their own fertiliser- and I really wish I liked tomatoes right now!
It got me thinking though of the unusual things that come and go within the building, like spare parts for an aeroplane or an optical spectrum analyser.
My favourite unexpected item is a space suit that arrived one day- and not just any space suit but the one worn by David Bowie in his 2015 music video- more awe inspiring than the thought it might have gone to space!
