Somerset, United Kingdom
My veg plot looks like Sleeping Beauty's castle. Everything is alive, no sign of pests or disease (apart from blackfly on broad beans, which I squidge), but nothing is actually growing. With the warm, wet weather, I'd expect it to be romping away, yet kale, broccoli, chard, spinach, french beans, etc, etc are pretty much the same size as when planted out 4-6 weeks ago (ie about 2 inches tall). At this rate I'll be picking my first cabbage in time for Christmas lunch! I live in the West Country, the plot is walled, south-facing, half was manured last year, limed the year before. Any ideas what's going on?
