Vegetable Gardening April 2010

Today (Saturday) has been a gloriously sunny April day so I decided to get out in the veg garden. My veg garden has been abit of a disgrace so this year I am making a concerted effort to keep on top of the dreaded nettles!

A few weeks ago I planted broad beans, peas, runner beans and french beans. Shoots are coming through on the broad beans.

Today I have dug one of my raised beds and pulled out all the remaining nettle roots that were lingering!

I have managed to plant:

  • Radish – french breakfast and sparkler varieties.
  • Lettuce – all year round and little gem varieties.
  • Spinach beet.
  • Beetroot.
  • Cauliflower.
  • Cabbage.
  • Brussel Sprouts.
  • Purple Sprouting Broccolli.
  • Courgettes.
  • Carrots.
