Broccoli

This year I haven’t been very good at growing vegetables: the courgettes were eaten up by the slugs, as well a the kohlrabi and most of the lettuce; beans and peas were decimated by mice; the potatoes and tomatoes suffered from fungus etc. etc.

 

One thing I am very proud about, however, is my broccoli. While last year was a catastrophe because it was top of the list with the caterpillars, we managed to have a few meals from the four plants that survived the slug attacks in the spring. (Though the first time I overlooked some caterpillars, which is why the rest of my family prefer broccoli from the shop.)

Here you can see last year’s broccoli — quite a difference, isn’t it?
