Happy peas and sad brassicas

Peas are ready down the plot. However, the brassicas I was leaving to plant out this week (brussels, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli) have either died in their rootrainers or gone blind. Still, more room down the plot for the summer sowing chinese vegetables and salads, and more room for more sowings of peas and beans which are doing nicely. Root veg also dismal.

Why do I bother growing lettuce when hubby bought some from the supermarket last night. My lettuce have harvestable leaves at present. Also, the herbs we have growing – basils, mints, etc, don’t seem to get used – he buys them from the supermarket as well. Maybe I should just give up and grow flowers, things that can’t be consumed or vegetables that the supermarkets don’t stock.
