beauty and the beast

as proud as i am about our beetroot, it really doesn't compare to the good looks of a new first-time-attempted radish!
(though quite honestly the radish tasted really blah...)

and our first cabbage!this is from the same little bunch of brassicas that our first cauli came from, that i nearly pulled out not so long ago! and sure enough, after harvesting that cabbage yesterday i was going to pull its stalk out along with another one that hadn't been doing anything... but something made me check right in the middle... and there was another teeny tiny cauli head forming!! one day i'll learn to just leave them alone!

(we've had a crazy few days, including a planned hospital trip, so i'll be back with more bits and pieces soonish!)

Yum, fresh radish from out of the garden are the best :)

Awesome vege's Nova. Wish we had some beetroot ready :-( Our radishes are HOT !!! We have some surprise cabbages too, they will be ready in a couple of weeks. I thought they were a flop, but turns out they were just late in the season.
