Kale uncovered 

How easy do you find it to bin seedlings? It’s certainly not something I do willingly and it’s a shame when there’s no one else interested. So, the alternative course is to find a space, somehow, anyhow, for them to grow.

Fortunately, there is plenty of room in the front garden for something as picturesque as Russian kale.

The downside of the front garden is that I didn’t want to put protection over the kale here. However, from observations of cabbage white butterflies in the back garden, I think that rocket (aragula) is warding them off the other brassicas planted alongside it. 

Perhaps the butterflies don’t like the spiciness!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
