We have an abundance of brassicas in the garden at this time of year. The curly kale, purple sprouting broccoli and cavolo nero are all doing well, although it looks as the cavolo may be starting to go to seed.

Not ready yet are the pointed cabbages and overwintering cauliflowers.

No brussel sprouts this year as I was having to rethink the layout of a big chunk of the garden after the sycamore trees had been removed and couldn't quite think where to put the sprouts. I shall definitely be putting them in this year; as well as the sprouts they usually produce a lovely "cabbage" on top and, if left long enough, mini-cabbages or "blown" sprouts from any that have been left behind.
