I pick them anytime after they start to look anything like a cauli.
That one looks good.

Bodgy

I would be picking that one a little before now

The flowerettes should be nice and tightly stuck together

I can see a few gaps appearing around the lower ones

Great job and the cabbage moths catapillars did not get any go at the leaves :)

It's off with his head then, thanks men.

The white moths haven't been around much with the cooler weather Glenn, when they are about I use the mix Smokey suggested, spray with a teaspoon of tomato dust in water and a little pest oil.

Lost nearly all the mandarines in a single raid by a flock of white cockies this week, the image of farken pricks all lined up along the side fence and on the shed roof, most with a mandarine that was just about right to be picked, was almost comical. They left me seven, the bastards :x Looks like I'll need to throw a net over that next year.

Tommies are starting to come in now.
And about time. Last few years I had just about harvested everything and pulled the plants by now.
I want to make some chilli sauce. Was supposed to today but got caught up so hopefully tomorrow.

Yeah sometimes seasons are harsh.
I've had a strange one this year. As mentioned it has been very late.
my plants are still relatively healthy this year compared to the last few years.
These pics were taken in the last week so lots of fruit to ripen up yet.

I made most of this into passata today.
Been eating stacks of tomatoes for a couple of weeks and loving it.

My stash from this weekend.
I turned 90% of these into sauce this today.
Currently reducing.
As you may tell I love tomatoes.
Nearly as much as meat. :D
