Vegetable Patch June 2006

The vegetables are coming along well. The sweetcorn aren't growing as quickly as I expected them to but they are getting bigger. The broad beans you can see have also done well. The courgette plant is flowering and the butternut squash is slowly following. The onions, leeks, and carrots are still quite small seedlings really and the second attempt at lettuce has proven a disappointment as nothing appears to have grown at all this time. Whether slugs or birds or some insect is eating them as they grow I don't know! Have I got time to try another row? Posted by Picasa

Hi Richard

Like the blog - are you planting the lettuce traight in the ground? You could try in a tray inside (which is what I did) and transfer only when they are big enough.
