Veggie Gap is Over

Monday was a much better day, pleasantly mild with only a gentle breeze and some decent sunny spells.

So far this season we’ve harvested rhubarb and a few bits and pieces to go towards salads but nothing very meaty if you get my drift. Well Monday put an end to the veggie gap when we harvested our first cabbage of the season.

As you can see from its brief history above it’s from Marshalls Early Brassica Collection which I received as plug plants on 20 March 2015. The calabrese, Marathon is also doing well and is just beginning to form small heads. The third variety supplied was cauliflower Mayflower which has grown into excellent plants but so far there are no signs of any heads which is probably a good thing as I don’t want all the collection ready to harvest at the same time.

  1. I was thinking the same thing today when I brought home a trug full of stuff from the allotment. Suddenly there's lots to harvest.

    1. Might have some strawberries to pick this week too.

  2. The cabbage look so green and fresh!
