My veggie garden is starting to yield edible veggies!! It's so exciting. All my potato plants died a few weeks ago - I think it may have been a combination of relentless attacks from snails and caterpillars, as well as a workman trampling them that did them in. }:-\ But anyway, I just dug them up and got a few potatoes, a lot of them no bigger than marbles - are these still okay to eat? I noticed that some of them were poking above the earth and had gone green where they were in sunlight - I reburied these, hopefully they'll grow. All of my broccolis are flowering. When should I pick them? The plants aren't very big yet so I doubt they'd be able to support the size head you buy in the grocery store. But I don't know how long it is until the flowers open and when I should pick them before that happens - any help? ETA : When I say "flowering" I mean the heads are developing. The actual flowers haven't yet opened. But I have no idea when the will or how big I should let the heads get before picking them. Right now the largest are maybe 4cm across. My cauliflower still isn't showing any signs of flowering - I wish it would because cauliflower is REALLY expensive to buy at the moment. Unfortunately I never really get enough peas at once to make a meal, but I throw the one or two I can pick into a salad or something. The rainbow chard and spinach just go mental with new growth whenever I crop them to eat. And I have no idea when the leeks will finally get large enough to pick. They've been like grass for the 4 months or so that they've been planted.
