Springing to it.

 Despite my infrequent posting lately I have been doing as much as I can in the veggie garden.

The cab owner has taken off OS for a month so I've picked some extra shifts which can only mean less veggie time for me.

The Scarlet Cambridge Broad Bean seeds I planted that I received from Scarecrow's Garden are coming nicely. Full of flowers.

 Beetroot seedling  from seed planted 3 weeks ago.
Lettuce, you can never have to much lettuce. Why the wire? Well I have a possum that's thinks the same it would seem, but I'm not in the sharing mood.
 Cabbage are thriving and I'm keeping a vigilant lookout for the dreaded cabbage moth. So far so good.
 Brocolini, simply yum.
What's that? More lettuce.
I also have spring onions growing and have planted some Dwarf bean seeds along with parsnips. Some self sown potatoes, Two Tommy Toe tomatoe plants and leeks that will need replanting next Tuesday.

That's all I can think of for now.
Cheers and happy veggie gardening

Lots of lovely lettuce! Home grown lettuce just tastes a million miles away from the insipid supermarket rubbish. Enjoy yours!

I am really pleased to see your beetroot, lettuce, cabbage gardening. You must have done much effort for it.
