The cauliflower is small but the cabbage is big...




A few more goodies from my garden, young lettuces, to be picked before the snails get there, or the weeds overgrow them! Yes, too many weeds in the veggie garden this year, I am sure that they are taking away precious nutrients from other plants, the cauliflowers had the record ... flop! The smallest I have had, or seen. The cabbages, on the other hand, were all big, I wish I could have swapped that, I don't like cabbages as much as I like cauliflowers, and I find them quite tiring, especially because they are so big that one feed us for 3 days in a row. But they are a thing of beauty to look at in the garden. 

And how is your garden going?




I am on holiday from today so I may not be posting regularly, but I am always around, and hope to have the time to visit your blogs more!!

  6. I really love the photo! We are having lots of fresh lettuce for our Christmas dinner as well! I've been very diligent with our garden this year and we are being rewarded with a lot of yummy fresh food.

  8. I love my vege garden and like you have more cabbages than cauliflowers at the moment although I did spy a few more coming through this week. I love my fresh leaves and lettuces most of all - beats having the chemical infested bagged leaves from the supermarket.

  9. Yes I am very pleased with the lettuces, mostly because they are so fast growing.
