Morning all. Bit overcast here, think it will burn off. Off to Beachy Head to walk the Seven Sisters before the crowds arrive.
Had our first moussaka made from our own aubergines last night, yum.

Lots of stuff online if you just want to specialise in veg. Also go to the local shows where you will see an abundance of top quality veg and pick up advice.

You might just get a crop of dwarf French beans if you sow now.

I live in the south and I sow my seeds under cover around mid may and plant out in early June.

Sweetcorn

It also pays to grow them in blocks because as Dove says they are wind pollinated, if they are grown in rows in pays to give the stems a tap to help distribute the pollen down to the tassels.

Sprouts....a pain in the posteria!!!

Agree with all the above advise. last year my sprout tops were massacred by caterpillars as I didn't bother to net them, I still had more sprouts than we could eat. I invested in the rescue netting for this year and touch wood no bug damage so far.

Morning all. pouring down here in Kent, lots of thunder and lightning last night and by the look of the forecast, more is on the way.
Might have to rethink plans for a sunny stroll in the countryside followed by lunch at the pub!!

OL, try not to feel down about your veg, its still early in the season and I am sure you will have plenty of delights in store. I've never had a year when everything I have grown has produced as I wanted. Like you said its your first year so be proud of everything you've achieved.
