    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    Excellent specimen. .....well done 

  • Thank you all for your comments etc.

    "I gave up on them a few years ago can never keep them so white- what's the secret?"

    Keep the curd covered either by leafs from the cauli itself or a plastic bag to keep the rain, frost, sunlight and everything else off the surface.  As the curd starts to develop cut away the larger outer leafs and pop a clear or white bin liner or some other bag over the curd and lightly tie underneath.

    "Failed ! There is no cheese sauce on it."

    There was plenty of cheese sauce on it over the weekend....Yum

    I am so jealous - I've never managed to grow one worth the name.

    Well done. Grrrr

  • I tried the bent leaves over the curds but it never seemed to really work never thought of a plastic bag would have worried it might "sweat & rot" image

    Cheese sauce by all means, but it also makes a lovely salad.  Steam it gently so it still has some crunch, and toss it in a mustardy vinaigrette while it's still warm.
