Lots going on in your yard Andy. Your gooseberries always seem to do particularly well.

As Susan says Caulis do take a long time to produce. Yours look healthy but it is starting to get a bit warm for them so will be interesting to see if you have some success.

James for his beans and Elaine for the garlic.

Hi Andy, 

Loved the look around.  You must be warmer there or it might be different varieties of grapes - mine are all still bare twigs with no sign yet of bud burst.  Your cauli's might take a fair while.  I've always found them to be 3-4 weeks after you'd expect broccoli.  I haven't had much luck with peas this year either.  I reckon we should all be hitting up James for his magic seeds.

Cheers Elaine.  I'm pouring trace elements into a few of those little ones.

Looking good Andy! Lotsa Lemons could do with Iron chelate; younger leaves yellow with green veins.
