I'm relatively new to growing veg (this is my second year). This year I decided to sow all my beetroot, chard, spinach and fennel successionally so I didn't end up with a glut. However the problem is that I didn't get the chance to make all my drills back when our clay soil was the right moisture. Now I find that it is either overcast or raining and the soil is permanently wet. As the plot is an open space down the bottom of the garden with only access being planks of wood I'm worried that:
a) I'll ruin the structure of the soil
b) encourage any seeds sown to rot
So, should I risk sowing in these conditions or leave it until the weather improves a bit?
Sowing in wet conditions or wait?Jump to latest post
