Oh where did it all wrong? And no I’m not talking about the Australian men’s 4 by 100 metres freestyle team, there’s been enough dissection of that unfortunate event without my contribution. No instead I’m talking about my cauliflower. This week I harvested 2 lots of cauliflower, this is the first:
Not great is it? -especially when you consider it’s two heads. I think the main problem here was a lack of sun.
This much improved effort also has florets that are starting to separate but at least it looks like cauliflower rather than a kind of white broccoli.
I ran out of seed of the variety I used to grow and switched to this one which is called All year round (or something similarly imaginative) and I’m not sure changing was the greatest idea – last years heads were much denser.
My only other photo this week features parsley, spring onions and an out of focus carrot but at least shows I did manage to harvest things other than mangy cauliflower.
And those were pretty representative of my harvests this week, clearly I am distracted by Olympics and the 4:30am starts to watch the swimming are doing nothing good to my brain. It was great to see the Australia girls win the gold that the men couldn’t though.
If watching people splash along following a black line (or sitting on horses, bikes, in boats, on beams etc etc etc), is not for you then head over to Daphne’s where you’ll find heaps of medal winning veg instead. Personally though I’m off to have a bit of a lie down….
