Also, this year I gave the entire veg patch a good dressing of Sear Rock dust. (ordered by the tonne works out cheapest). I know its been a good year, but I have to say that in the 25 years I have been working this garden, this years veg have been the best ever. The sweet peas that I grow in the veg patch have also been magnificent. I have been giving away sweet peas and veg to friends, relatives, workmates, and neighbours. I intend using it again. Its not a fertiliser as such, it just puts back all the micronutrients that get washed out of the soil over the years. I've started to put a sprinkle every six inches or so in the big compost heap used for maturing. The worms work it in, so when I use it for top dressing, the benefit gets spread around the garden.
