I mentioned a while ago that there were brassicas in my polytunnel and I wasn't sure if they were cabbage or cauliflower.  This is the first year of overwintering veg and it is worth it.  Today I harvested this...
And in a few days I'll be harvesting broad beans!

The peas haven't done well and the beetroot grew very tall but with not much root.

It's a beautiful day here today, blue sky, sunshine and temperature 21C.  What a change from the past few weeks, I've hardly been out in the garden at all until today.
