June 2016 (2).

Ecobed 4 has brassicas growing in it this year.  I usually pack them in too tightly, but this year they seem fine.  I started with 5 lettuce, 3 mini cabbage , 2 mini cauliflower, 2 Romanesco broccoli and 2 Waltham broccoli.  3 of the lettuce have been harvested and curds are forming on the Waltham broccoli.

The Romanesco broccoli have a beautiful, tasty decorative, pale green curd, but only produce one per plant.  Waltham on the other hand after producing a large central curd follows by a succession of smaller florets over several weeks.
