Amazing Cauliflowers

Look what’s growing in the vegetable patch! Amazing cauliflowers!! Well they may seem pretty ordinary to you, but to me they are amazing because this is the first time I have grown them.  The little plants were dug in last Autumn and immediately grew big green leaves, but for months there has been no sign of anything else.  Then today I went and had a look at them, and I have 3 cauliflowers.  Not much I know but I only had 6 plants to start with, so maybe the other 3 are late developers?

My first cauliflower!!

I shall wait another week for the largest one to grow a bit bigger and then next Sunday with our roast we shall sample our first home grown cauliflower.

Also down the veggie patch is the first emerging rhubarb.  I love the way the buds push their way through the soil and then unfurl their leaves revealing their pinky red stems.

Having cleared the strawberry bed of all the dead foliage and runners, the new little plants are developing their first leaves, hopefully heralding a bumper crop of delicious red berries in June.  Can’t wait!!

The next job is to plant the first early potatoes.  I love this time of year, it’s so exciting planning our crops for the coming season.
