I went to CES in Las Vegas this year and discovered this amazing device by Parrot called Flower Power. It's a sensor that analyzes your plant's needs by monitoring four crucial parameters: ambient light, temperature, soil moisture, and fertilizer. Once it determines the exact needs of the plant, it sends an alert right to your smart phone or computer. I can't wait to get a few for my greenhouse!

    Wow! I'm amazed!

The vegetable garden continues to grow beautifully in its new location. In this corner are all of the brassicas, like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.

    Martha, can I be your bff please?



Do you know why these leaves are clipped? This is a cauliflower plant and to keep the heads nice and white and to prevent them from developing an off flavor, the leaves are folded up and over the cauliflower head and fastened in order to protect it from sunburn.

    You know everything!

The cabbage heads are forming nicely. This one is Jersey Wakefield, a favorite for US gardeners since the 1840s. It quickly produces large, dense heads that have a sweet flavor, making it a popular cabbage for coleslaw.

This rather pretty cabbage is called Super Red. It forms dark red 3-5 lb. heads that have a tender and crisp texture and a slightly peppery taste.

This is broccoli Gypsy that forms nicely domed and uniform heads.

    do broccoli plants only form 1 head per plant?

  • Laura R

    Yes, they only form 1 big crown. But, most people don't realize you can get plenty more smaller crowns from a plant after the initial harvest.

    As a young gardener I was told to snip off the head of the first broccoli that appears when it's the size of a quarter. After that you will get several shoots of broccoli on one plant. I keep track of the broccoli and snip the shoots before they flower. I get a ton of broccoli doing that.

    I had three bunnies living in my backyard this summer, luckily they didn't seem too interested in my vegetable gardens.

  • Scarlettsville

    WOW! You are lucky. How did you manage to keep them away from your veggies? Wonder what they were eating. They are so cute, love bunnies
