Everything’s growing really well.

The pak choi is still being eaten even though it’s bolted – still tastes fine. The leaves round the edges of the rainbow chard have been used in some stir-fries. Broad beans are almost ready to harvest.

The carrots haven’t been given enough room for the second year running. They’re being swamped between the 2 rows of savoy cabbage which have enormous leaves this year. ANother thing being swamped is the spring onions and lettuce, which aren’t doing well at all!

Everything else is growing like crazy though :-D
