Spinach looks good

We went to harvest some spinach this morning. I was a bit unsure what we would find, but to my relief the plot was fine. Our Heath-Robinson approach to covering our plants seems to have kept the veg scoffers at bay. The sweet corn does look a bit better than I hoped and the leeks are all as we left them. We tried and failed to find a supply of suitable netting - we'll have to look a little further afield.

The spinach looks really good; cooler weather does suit it. It was just 11°C at 10am Mid June. The ground is nicely wet too, so this current weather is good for some things.

We bought some seeds for early purple-sprouting broccoli today - it's a touch late to sow it but since it grows for nearly a year I'm sure it will catch up. That should be a treat next February when not much else is available to harvest.
