Growing local

Hi team, I totally forgot what I planted here, anyone got any ideas? Looks to me like a Brassica and the flowers are gorgeous now that it’s bolting.

It looks like Gai lan or kai-lan and you can eat the flowers. They taste lovely.

Thanks team. I don’t use sprays anyway, I’ll just smoosh what seems out of hand and let the ladybugs take care of the rest.

Watch out for cabbage aphids, they are particularly attracted to brassicas that are bolting. A few will turn into thousands within a couple of weeks. Cabbage aphids are covered with a gray powder which seems to protect them from the usual vegetable/neem oil based sprays.

I've had white flowers on Kaileen express - a chinese type of broccoli.

Assuming it's not a broccoli, my guess would be Chinese Broccoli as they have white flowers. The other asian vegies tend to have yellow flowers.
