Sandra has been writing about cooking with kale for her family. I'm keen to start feeding it to my family too.
'Get Growing' newsletter that you can nip out the growing tips of cabbages, and the plants will prosuce several mini cabbages instead of one big one. So I boldly took out the middle of a couple of the cabbages. Except afterward I re-read the instructions, and I think I might have done too soon. Will be interesting to see what happens anyway.
The purple sprouting broccoli is looking lovely with it's purple stems and veins. It's growing more slowly than my other variety of broccoli, but this is what it did last year too.
I still have 4 punnets of brassica seedlings to prick out, but unfortunately their labels are unreadable so I have no idea what they are. I did write in my diary that I planted red cabbage, romanesco broccoli, cauliflower and kohl rabi. It wouldn't be a problem except that the kohlrabi could be planted a lot closer together than the others. But since I don't know which is which, the kohl rabi will find itself with a generous amount of growing space. I hope it appreciates it.
