Spring is here

Winter is finally over. The greenhouse has been repaired, potting shed got new staging. The only thing left to do is start sowing, which I started on Sunday 23rd March. Carrot and parsnips in buckets, Toms (Hildaire and Harzfeur [ from LIDL]), cabbage (Hispi), Sprouts, Cauli all year round and beetroot Boltardy. Spuds are chitting. Next weekend it's Broccoli, swede, and anything else I've forgot. Plus since I now have a generator and electric rotovator I'll be turning at least two beds over in readiness.
I think it's a bit too early yet for the salad stuff yet. Does anyone agree/disagree??

Brilliant cabbages onions, shallots and garlic
Had two small patches of spuds,
one maris piper other rooster, maris piper blighted haulms but tubers ok although a bit small
Beetroot Bolthardy just about ready. Sowed carrotts Early Nantes in buckets of shop bought compost as an experiment with fabulous results.
First pickings a bit small but remainder getting bigger. Will definitely do the same next year.
