the last 3 weeks have cause havoc in the garden..not sure what damage crops tolerate..maybe you guy's can help. will the crops below survive? or should i get busy sowing more seed! I decided to pull one of my cabbages today..i just wanted to see how the root and stems were forming..looked quite good. no head formed however..just a bunch of lush leaves.

I think all should recover fine. Plants are very resilliant. But why not sow some more to be sure?

A wind breaker net looks like a good investment for your garden too! Smile

there appears to be hail damage as well as pigeon damage. Young plants are resilient especially at this time of the year so leave them to recover.
