I eat and like a lot of kale - nearly every other day. But when I cook cabbage, I dislike the smell when itís cooking and the taste when I eat it - very much. I expect that is the sulfur. But kale has sulfur too, but does not smell like that and has a nice taste.
I canít find anywhere how much sulfur they have - can anyone else? Or is there another reason for my dislike of cabbage but not kale?
Thanks! Annemieke.

 This year as an experiment I've left my runner beans in, I've cut them down to ground level mulched  with leaves and home made compost, I read some where a gardener digs up his beans ( as they are tender perennial) and plants in pots in his greenhouse to over winter then they make better plants for the following year Have anyone done this and was it successful ?

In a rush to get something growing on my new plot I planted some early carrots from a cheap packet of seed. I did not think Autumn Giant would do quickly enough although I do like them. 10 weeks later and they are ready to eat as baby carrots. I was very disappointed with the taste, but today  I had some that were picked and then I forgot, left them behind at the allotment. Took the tops off today and steamed as usual, they were lovely and tasty.

Do you think the taste develops after leaving for a couple of days? instead of being cooked within an hour of picking.

No good for my allotment in a growing sense, but as it seemed like the usual rainfall for the year all came last night it done me a favour. I chipped out all the weeds, grass and rubbish out of the gravel drive yesterday. It looked a mucky mess, this morning all clean gravel and the drive and parking area looks like I've dressed it with new stuff. I expect it also got the worms working on the allotment they should have taken down a fair amount of manure last night.
