Week 19: Oh My CAULI! Whats Happened to my Cauliflower?! But my Calabrese is doing well!

I was so pleased that my Cauliflower was doing well. Two of the three plants had bulked up and started to produce a flower head. It is such a shame that in just a week, they seemed to have been ruined.

Attacked by White Fly as the flower head has become droopy and badly deformed.

This one looks even more deformed with spindly flower heads ruined by nature.

I have sprayed them with an Organic Insect Vegetable Spray in the hope that the White Fly will go and eat something else but we shall have to see what happens as in the Brassica Raised Bed there is also the Calabrese, Beetroot and Bedford Brussels Sprouts.

Week 18 and they were doing so well.

Brussel Sprout plants are doing rather well. I might need to thin them out.
