Growing Broccoli & Cauliflowers In The Middle of Summer

I have finally got the hang of “succession planting”. This is where you plant your veggies multiple times to prolong your harvest. I planted cauliflowerimageimageand broccoli every second weekend in winter. So we have been harvesting them right through summer. I managed to plant someimage seedlings in spring too.These photos show the caulis and broccs we are harvesting onimage New Year’s Day 2015!

(also pictured, some Scarlett Runner Beans and one of our Lazy Housewife Beans. They get to about a foot long, and have the best name of any bean- sums up my approach to gardening!)
