    Hi Ryora welcome along...

    I've sown some lettuce recently - though its probably gone too hot again to expect much from that.
    Maybe spring cabbage and overwintering onions.
    I'm a bit out of kilter with things this year due to the heat and lack of rain.

    1574 gin and tonics please Monica, large ones.

    I sowed some kale seeds yesterday, and spring cabbage today.
    Endless wonder.

    ^^^ If this weather keeps up we might all start doing a bit more Mediterranean style gardening... especially true if you live in sunshiny South Wales I suppose

    Well I have sown carrots (Nantes 5) turnip, Radicchio. beetroot and swiss chard. I have spring cabbage plants growing (just showing first leaves). However, I had to put bug killer on them as something is chewing the leaves.

    Anybody trying leeks from seeds now!?

    I stuck a few runner beans in yesterday - pretty late, but maybe I'll get a few beans from them if the weather stays warm.
    Today, I've sown walking onions and two kinds of welsh onions, put my nicely sprouted turmeric roots in, sown some swiss chard and some florence fennel (a bit late according to some sites and right on time according to others). I was going to sow some chicory too, but I ran out of steam.
