So far this year has been a shocker for the garden. We're still getting very variable spring weather and seedlings simply aren't coming up as fast. The tunnel house is working overtime on germinating lettuces, chillis and cabbages for planting out soon. The potatoes are coming up but somewhat slowly. Fair enough considering the cold winds. The cabbages that were growing went to seed during a hot spell and then were crushed by the snow...the little buggers didn't stand a chance. Hopefully things settle down so we get a good growing period before Christmas.
