February 26, 2016
The kitchen garden is right now in the middle of a reasonably extensive rebuilding and renovation. Hallways are being relocated and made larger, and beds are being replaced, moved, turned and curtailed.
There was just nothing about it in the garden plan 2016, when I planted the overwintering cauliflowers in August - in a bed that now no longer exists. And therefore I have again had the opportunity to make some experiences with something I have not tried before: moving quite large cabbage plants in February. They were dug up with as much soil as possible and planted a little deeper than they have previously stood. All winter I have been looking forward to harvesting cauliflower in April-May, and with 6 out of 9 plants that have survived the winter, I was reasonably optimistic last week. Right up until I got the urge for a little change on Monday. Fortunately, however, the weather has been relatively cool since the operation, so there is still room for some optimism.
