A bouquet & a nice surprise in the garden

Mike got a little too happy chopping away at the Psb yesterday evening. We didn't take a bowl into the garden. My job was to stand there & hold the broccoli as Mike cut the spears. I must say it made a rather nice bouquet.
There is more than it looks!
As Mike turned to come away he spotted this -
My very first homegrown cauliflower. Seeds sown by me, seedling raised by me, planted by me & hopefully at the weekend picked by me.

As you can understand I am very proud & pleased. It will be served with great reverence.

  1. I'm so envious of everyone who's harvesting their psb now, mine were devoured by slugs at the seedling stage so none here this year. The cauliflower looks great, enjoy.

    1. Sorry to brag, it has taken me about 4 years to grow a decent crop.

  2. Isn't it great to be eating all your own work?

    1. I have some seedlings for summer cauliflower. I shall certainly have another go at the winter ones again.

    Well done, that's a terrific looking cauliflower, I hope that it tastes as good as it looks. Flighty xx

  5. Your broccoli and cauliflower look great; I've never had much success with broccoli for some reason, so I'd be very happy with a crop like that.

    1. It was very well protected from cabbage white butterfly's & pesky pigeons.

  7. Your cauliflower looks great! I had one two years ago, but it was eaten by slugs :( I hope it was delicious :)

    1. I have been quite lucky on the slug front so far, touch wood. I am hoping to harvest the cauli over the weekend - or shortly after.

  8. Very impressed with your cauliflower, you should be showing off, I think they are quite hard to grow so well as that. I'm trying growing them for the first time this year. I'll keep you posted. My Psb never got going this year and I think I have one spear waiting for me to pick it at the allotment. Will try again.
