Am I the only one with no veg planted yet ? .
My garden is still wet after the winter and it feels too cold to plant anything out , have people planted their spuds ? am I the only one facing starvation from about mid summer .

I'll be starving with you Mick. Nothing, absolutely nothing done yet. Last years potatoes still in the ground, just cannot get a tractor in as the ground is so wet. Digging by hand as we need them. Haven't even cleaned out the greenhouse from last year yet.

I have a few things planted - still no spuds and I haven't sown any peas yet as there is nowhere to put them. The area I want to grow them has some, very late, sprouting broccoli just about ready.

Looks like it's broccoli for breakfast, dinner, tea ....

I planted out my Leeks the day before yesterday as I had to do something, they were pulverized with the rain yesterday but they are OK today.
