Some of you may remember that I was rather stressed about my brassicas not performing in the vegetable bed. They were growing very well but not making heads. Around that time I made a new friend who is a veggie farmer who kept on urging me to just wait. I read up about them and decided that I would have to pull them all up and start again. I was again urged to just wait.
My new friend came to visit me recently, and walked into my veggie garden and yanked a complete broccoli plant out of the ground. I nearly hit him over the head!
He showed me where I had J-rooted the plant but kindly (and probably because he saw my face) replanted the plant in the same spot. I did not hold out much hope for it though.
Well today I can announce that my brassicas all have heads and I will be getting some cauliflowers, broccoli and cabbage. Yay!

As you can see – I am loving my new camera. So many new things in my life right now. This is good.
