Update:I seem to be well in advance of previous years this year, possibly by as much as 2-3 weeks which I put down to the mild virtually non-existent winter.In my pre-retirement days my "planting out" date was the nearest weekend to May 14th which often coincided with 'Whitsuntide' plus the late frost were unlikely, this year (tongue in cheek) I planted out much sooner.This was the state of play this morning ( sorry for the quality of the pictures ---the weather was overcast and I only had my phone camera with me which shakes like hell when I use it)My Tomatoes & Cucumbers and some early lettuce in the 12x8A couple of beds in the 28x8 (Tomatoes,Carrots & Peppers)More Peppers in the 28x8My new Strawberry bedGarlic in my old Strawberry bedA few bits and pieces in the coldframe some of which I will plant out next weekPumpkins on the compost heap, the empty pots are for the courgettesPotatoes ready for ridgingPotatoes a half hour laterBrussels Sprouts and Red Cabbage1st Batch of Cauli & Calabrese, 2nd batch in cold frameBecause I grow hybrids which all tend to mature together I make successional sowings to spread my cropping season.Peppers and Cucumber in 8x6I am fitting in a crop of Cobra climbing french beans in rings which will be harvsested and removed before the peppers need the space.My seed sown OnionsGone off setts this year because they have been a bit rubbish in the last few years.My Chrysanthemum bedMy Gladioli bedSeems to be a lot of chickweed about this year looks like I will have to get the hoe outNext job is to give my herbaceous border a facelift, weather permitting will try and complete it this weekend!If any of you are growing similar crops I would be interested to hear/see how they are progressing so that I can compare notes!
