Winter Brassicas Planted on the Warmest Day of the Year

Friday wasn't as sunny as the last two days with much more light cloud about in the afternoon. It felt very muggy as the temperature reached 25.6°C to become the warmest day of the year taking over from 18 May’s 25.2°C.
We managed to finish off planting out our autumn and winter brassica plants. We've planted cauliflower Clapton, Savoy’s Wintessa and Resolution together with calabrese Green Magic to hopefully keep us supplied with greens through the autumn and winter.
I think this season’s planting is just about completed now apart from successional sowings of some salad vegetables. I might try a late sowing of french beans to crop into the beginning of autumn provided the weather doesn’t get too bad.

It’s mostly a case of harvesting for the next few weeks.
