Not sure what's going on with the broccoli?? There do seem to be florets forming but there are still flowers?? Maybe we got them in too late or maybe we didn't thin them out enough? I hadn't realised quite how large these plants get !? I'm thinking of leaving them over winter and seeing what happens!?

It has taken 3 years but it looks like we might have some broccoli this year!

Fort Brassica seems to be doing the trick. There is a little bit of leaf damage, which I think must be down to baby cattapillars hiding in the soil? I think slugs would have caused more damage tbh

The broccoli and cabbages are looking ready to be planted out and are hardened off to the sun over a few days Definitely not dead yet

They're not dead yet. Thanks to Mick for constructing some greenhouse shelving. I've put half the broccoli and half the cabbage seedlings in and the rest I am keeping in the fridge aka my flat #foodisfree #greenhouse
