Down on the Allotment

Matron grows vegetables and fruit in a Hampshire garden. I've been growing veggies since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Some traditional varieties and old favourites as well as new ideas. I share my garden with my allotment assistant Daisy the Labrador. On Twitter as @MatronsVeggies

My Broccoli

I spaced out my broccoli a little more this year. In previous years I have planted them about 12" apart in order to acheive a "broccoli hedge" (I like hedges don't I?). This year I had more space and fewer plants.

EVERY day I have to search the inner and outer leaves for caterpillars, and every day I find more than one. The colder nights in the last week might help keep the numbers down. Carry on squishing! Posted by Picasa
