Hi Richard

Great to see that you are getting the long awaited results from your Broccoli

Looks promising from what I can see in your picture

Love to see how the plant progresses in the coming weeks.

Thanks.....Yes I was surprised to see the broccoli this morning, I was about to give up on the whole plant. This is the first time I ever grew it so I knew very little about it. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few weeks. I'll take photos..

Sorry, Richard, I don't know that one at all. It looks very interesting though. Tell us over on Cooking how you get on with it.

70 days

It's been 70 days since I planted my 3 cabbage plants, one of them is just about ready to cut, the other two cabbage plants are doing great. My two broccoli plants are fine but still have a good ways to go. Took these two shots of the cabbage plants today. Top and side view.

hi Richard

Looking good from here. Keep on talking to it, and let it grow into a fine speciman it should be.

Keep us up to date and see how it grows!
