update on spuds, had a root around in the drill to check progress on growth, not a blink, very same as the day they were put in, growth zero, built up the drill and sowed beetroot on top, not looking good, Awell nothing ventured, nothing gained. Its early days yet, Will leave them in situ to prove me wrong.

I would not be worried as soil temperature has been below 6 degrees for a good while now even grass is not growing, if they were chited and have eyes they will be ok, Nature always catches up it is due to rain a litle on Tuesday and Wednesday after that with a raise in temp things will really take off so stat on top of things as you will very quickly find yourself snowed under with work if you have a large garden with weeding, transplanting of seedlings, feeding and watering, Cutting grass, enjoy life dont always be in a rush.

I bit the bullet today and planted the spuds, after reading Greengages reply, I feel confident, plenty of eyes on them so I should be ok. The garlic is growing strong and so is the spinach but the onions and seed trays are very slow. But what can you do. If the weather does improve we are all going to be very very busy!!

I got Edzell Blue and Pimpernell spuds fron Irish Seed Savers. Haven't grown either before but a pal says Edzell Blue are delicious. We'll see. Planted them about a week ago, as soon as it began to warm up. Onions are in, too, and shallots and broad beans. (I intend to use these very young in stir fries as no one here is keen on big ones.) Mangetout peas are in modules in the cold frame, with parsley, tagetes, sweet peas and teazles. I've sown some 'spicy salad mix' from Aldi outside, but I think it's too early for it. And I've station sown some carrots between the shallots to see if that helps ward off the carrot root fly. Time will tell!
