Protecting the cauliflowers

So finally our cauliflowers have started to grow their beautiful white heads despite their foliage being ravaged by the caterpillars. Now in order to keep the heads white they need to be protected from the sun. So now I finally have a use for all those elastic bands I’ve been keeping (our post tends to come wrapped up in one each day and J keeps trying to throw them out but I have insisted on keeping them as they were bound to come in handy, how nice it is to be proved right). 

This one has already started to lose it’s bright whiteness

It may not look pretty but it serves a purpose!
