The life and times of Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian' and Broccoli, 'Romanesco'. Week 12ish.


The story so far.

14 Feb 2009 seed planted. Click here for full story












Nicely tucked away.












19 Feb 2009, up and running.
















26 Feb 2009, A bit slow to get going due to my poor choice of seed raising mix.
























18 Mar 2009, well this is where I left you, at the soil preparation stage. Click here for more on soil preparation stage.










The story continues.
22 Mar 2009. After the soil preparation it was time to plant Cauliflower, 'Violet Sicilian' and Broccoli, 'Romanesco'. It was now or never because as you can see in the photos they were going nowhere in the potting mix I had them in.









Dig a little hole












and pop them in. Can you see that poor pathetic little Broccoli in the middle of the photo?













Well this is him/her now.

They have had plenty of help along the way with regular applications of fish emulsion, rooster booster, watering and mulching.

Ooh I just remembered I have to put on some Sulphate of potash. Looks like this afternoons job :0





















This poor little guy had all his/her leaves eaten off about four weeks ago and I kept hoping he/she would sprout again and it has so hopefully it can go on to fulfill it rightful potential on my dinner plate :)







I make that three months since I planted the seed so these guys should be about 2/3 of the way there.

I'll keep an eye on them and when something more interesting happens I'll get it up here lickety split.

Cheers for now and happy veggie gardening,
Stewart
