na ... uli... . will prob do so over the weekend. .
Had about 4 cauli and 3 broccoli I had to pick when we got back so have been blanching, freezing and eating some of them. .
Even trimmed all the stalks and centres for stir fry... geesh it's so nice FRESH raw... Have pulled all the cauli out but left the broccoli long in the ground to see if I get any littlies... :}}

uli, 3 days, 6 hours
Give them some horse manure or good compost and they will be away again after picking.
Even drape some frost cloth over to give them a bit more warmth.
Good luck!
