Looking ahead to the winter, today some winter brassicas were planted out. Ma got very excited yesterday when they arrived, and they have to be planted out ASAP. I had a vague idea where to plant them and how. In the one bed, that hasn’t done very well or very much. Also this area, has in past flooded quite a bit too. Of course, many will tell you about having to net them. Well, these are part netted, part fleeced. I do have veggie mesh on the other cabbages.
Stupidly, have left gaps in those and so flutterbies have got in. As well as that, slugs! I swear they are psychic. Only just planted things, collared them, added pellets. Whoosh. Big fat thing was there as though it had ESP. Was promptly lobbed. It was not pleasant.
Anyway, the cabbages, caulis and broccoli have been sunk. As to whether they last, well that’s another thing.
Yours in anticipation,

Brassicas – gotta be the biggest challenge in the allotment.
At least I don’t get slugs and snails.
But caterpillars big enough to win in a scrum
these are winter ones. Despite blue pellets of doom, cabbage collars and nets, the one’s I planted last week are already lacy 😦
