I did go to the plot yesterday and pick some greens - and a goodly amount of carrots too. I also barrowed and dug manure into the pea and bean patch, walking across the new brassica patch to compact the ground in the process. One school of thought is that you should never compact ground where you want to grow vegetables, but I make an exception for brassicas which can disappoint in loose soil.
Once the promised cold snap has passed I can contemplate getting started on this year's sowing in earnest. In the meantime I'll champ on crispbreads.
