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!
