cauliflowers and kohl rabi


The little cauliflower and kohl rabi plants are ready to go out.

Or more accurately, we are ready for them to go out!

This is the time of year when we have lots of seedlings growing in the greenhouse and we need space. So, after a little 'hardening off' our plants were put into their new home.

I watered the ground copiously before planting due to the exceptionally dry conditions. Then, a trowel hole dug, plants a trowel length apart and firmed in.

We finished them with a good helping of lime and eggshells that had been collected over the winter.

The final step was to provide protection with netting and hoops against the attentions of the famished rabbits.
