Sprouting Broccoli

It's getting towards the "hungry gap" now that the sprouting broccoli is nearly over. Last year I sowed Lancer Mix which mature successionally and included a mid to late white variety as well as early, mid and late purple types.

The only plant left to harvest has the best looking purple sprouts of all of them.

Over the new year I nearly pulled up the Red Ursa kale as it looked fairly bedraggled ,but I'm now glad I didn't as it's having a final burst of growth. Apart from the broccoli and some parsley it's about the only thing still producing, as I dug up the last of the leeks today and sowed some chard and lettuce now that the weeds are emerging ( a sign that the soil is warming up?)
