Leek and Potato Soup Anyone?

Leek and Potato Soup Anyone?

It's April and things are getting busy in the vegetable patch. In previous years I have been thwarted by the weather in early April with cold northerly winds drying out the soil but leaving the temperature too low to sow anything. This year it is warmer, there is no wind and the soil is drying out to a nice workable tilth. As a result I have been seed sowing like a mad thing. Today for example spring onions, beetroot, chard, broad beans and carrots went in. With the favourable weather everything is also growing well. My mangetout and early broad beans are up as are toamotes and courgettes in the polytunnel.
