We had the first of the new potatoes today - nearly a fortnight later than the last two years but not surprising given the cold spring.
I can hardly move in the greenhouse at the moment due to pots and trays of plants which should be potted up into final positions or going outside. So long as this cool windy weather prevails I'm loathe to put out any more brassicas and lettuce only to see them ripped from the ground by gale force winds. By mid-May I should be well on the way to getting through the greenhouse potato crop and making the space available to the tomatoes and peppers, etc. but not this year.
One thing that does seem to enjoy this weather is radishes. I sow them regularly in any containers I have to hand and they just seem to grow away regardless.
