Veg for next month and tomatoes.

Emmalou, you could try Pak choi, Chinese cabbage. For future reference, don't remove healthy leaves from tomatoes, the fruit doesn't need sunlight to ripen, but the plant does need it's leaves for energy.

In that case Jason it might be a good idea to try hand pollinating.

Are you growing them indoors or outside. I've grown them before outside and they pollinated ok. Taste was good but found the plants a bit susceptible to mildew.

That's a lovely 'clean' white Sweet Pea Fairygirl. Do you mind me asking its name?

If it's any solace you've picked the hardest brassica to grow, they demand much more attention than any others.

Other than encouraging birds to do the job for you it's down to you to hand pick them off unfortunately. I grow all brassicas under netting otherwise they'd be massacred by cabbage whites. If your caulis aren't growing anymore I would pick one and try it, once they stop growing the next stage is going to flower!
