The cabbage plants came from Marshall's....so I planted them this afternoon.
I put in 8 "Spring Hero", 8 "Peter", 8 Calabrese, and 8 Kale "Hungry Gap". I netted them against the pigeons. I also slug pelleted them as I'm sure they are a bit tender...!
I didn't have any cabbage collars at the plot. I think I should be safe at this time of year if I don't bother with them.....does anyone think I should put them on....if so I will!!!
There were 16 of each plant sent, but the others were for my new neighbour plotholder who only needed a few too. I have brussels sprouts plants here at home, and purple sprouting, so I think we'll have enough brassicas this winter.
We are off to E Germany next week for one week....so posts will be scarce here. I might get to the plot once more before we go to check on the little plants and have a pick round, and the neighbour has said she'll keep an eye out for me too.
Behave yourselves while I'm away....!
