Two out of the four raised vegetable beds are growing nicely. Bed 3 has 8 tubers of potatoes growing very nicely:
Bed 3 has 3 rows of crimson flowered broad beans, a few peas and a few radish:
However, beds 1 and 4 are not doing so well. Below, bed 1 has some nice lettuces, radish and a few peas, but everything else is either failing to germinate or germinating very sparsely and they are new seeds!:
The smaller bed 4 has beetroot and spinach in. The first lot of spinach went to seed and now a second and third batch are trying to grow. The first sowing of beetroot failed although it was older seed. The second and third batch are thinking about it!:
I haven't done anything different to normal so am putting it down to the rubbish weather. One vegetable that so far is growing well, is the courgette:
The container has loads of manure and other feed in it. The yellow is a patty pan type and the one on the right looks like it will be growing small green cricket ball sized courgettes. Time will tell.
