My first harvest from the veg plot.

Carrots and cabbage DuncanMy first harvest from the veg plot.

I harvested my first Cabbage Duncan at the weekend along with last of my carrots from the Gro-Bed in the greenhouse and they were both delicious! I needed to get the  Gro-Bed out of the greenhouse so I could sort out my tomato plants - there wasn't room in there for both!

The radishes that I sowed two weeks ago are up and so is the mixed lettuce. I put peas and runner bean plants in last weekend too and both are doing really well too albeit they're a bit later than usual, which seems to be par for the course with me this year.

I also sowed some more carrots as the first ones seemed to be a bit hit and miss germinating. I've re-sown the gaps and can only hope for a better crop than I had last year! I used to grow really good carrots and they are one of our favourite vegetables but last years were a miserable failure. I'm hoping this second sowing will be an improvement, I guess only time will tell!
