Ok not so pretty as my last post but I love my veg too and very pleased I have #broccoli 🥦 developing! The amount of watering and care they’ve had I feel I’ve deserve this one 😂

Oh thank you @linfoster first time I’ve grown Calabrese, so hopefully that’s what it’s supposedly look like?!

@linfoster according to the packet and my labels it should be Calabrese as in a green cauliflower, my tender stem as in green purple sprouting have just about finished and these haven’t started to form yet.. time will tell 😂😂

Oh @linfoster who knows what I’ve got then 😂😂 I have got a few purple sprouting plants that have already produced.. I thought I’d been really careful with my labels too 😱

@linfoster I thought I’d grown summer purple sprouting, tender stem, cauliflower, savoy, sprouts and Calabrese. I tried to have different greens coming at different times.. loving my sprouts at the mo, everything else has finished so I thought I was waiting on Calabrese... but tbh I’ll be gratefully for any fresh veg in the winter whatever it turns out to be 😂😂
