Super happy with how my garden is going at the moment and the things I have been learning about growing food successfully.
I had a little win this morning when I looked up Google to find out what the nutrient deficiency was in the leaves of my brassicas in one part of my garden. The younger leaves had white veins but green between the veins and some of the leaves were all white in the middle.. I am aware that this is called Chlorosis, however by using this …Continue
