YES!!! The head of one of my Romanesco Cauliflower’s is forming 🙂 #CauliflowerWin
They are starting to pick up now.. Got a lot of Cabbage White Butterfly, but apparently they avoid the edible bit..
And here’s the Purple Sprouting Broccoli next to another companion bed.
Although I did find one of Broccoli had collapsed and Richard, one of my neighbours suggested I might have “Clubroot”, which I checked online and it said not to grow Brassica’s in the same plot for 10 years!
Though Richard also said because the land had been cultivated for so long, it had “all the diseases” anyway so not to worry too much about it, and just add lots of lime to the soil before growing Brassica’s next time. Though next year I might grow something else there, probably a root crop.
My Pumpkin’s coming along nicely! Though I need to hoe around it a bit
Not sure what this is, think it’s another variety of Squash..
Also starting to get quite a few tomatoes in this bed.
This is the other companion bed with Squash/Courgettes, Sweetcorn, Carpet Plants (which form a “carpet” like mat on the floor) and Runner Beans
The Squash in these beds are coming along as well, in fact they might even be ready?
The Sweetcorn is also growing well.
This “cob” is forming
The Runner Beans are also doing well
And still getting lot’s of Courgettes coming through
Also planted out some Giant Winter Spinach today (22nd August)
so will see how that goes..
And here’s the plot currently from the top.
