Don't worry, the post on the indoor tomato experiment is on its way. They are now almost a metre tall! Wonders of only a few hours of direct sunlight. Alas I broke my toe last night and that post needs a fair amount of work. Given this pain I decided to go for another smaller but equally as pressing post - about the Purple Sprouting Broccoli. It is growing so so so well as you can see by the pictures below.
Thing is, I only just realised how long it takes from planting to harvest (almost a year). And the pots/spaces it occupies will be needed in several months. So the dilemma is do I keep tending to it now only to pull it in September, or do I pull it now and put in something like silverbeet or lettuce that will crop before the end of the wintery season? I could just pull some of them and leave one or two, because I plan in staggering the tomato planting over the season so maybe just maybe one of the purple sprouting broccolis will sprout? Am I wrong in thinking they take so long?
Decisions, decisions. Thoughts anyone?
