I have just sown, Cauliflower Jerome, Cabbage Tundra and Sprouting Brtoccoli Rudolph.
There is no better show of antisipation than a man sowing seeds in a field.

What a coincidence, I'm about to sow North Foreland caulis!  ;) (Isn't that a Kent Lighthouse?).

Soon to sow spring cabbage, (April) & don't forget to leave space for your garlic & winter oniions.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

I've just moved my little homemade fruit/veg cage off the red currants ready for planting with winter crops.  Have got some purple sprouting broccoli to go in this weekend and also thinking about kale as well.

If you are late with your seeds, what about baby veg plants?  At work I have a selection of baby veg packs on offer - some fast croppers for this summer and some for overwinter.  Customers are snapping up PSB, kale, spring cabbage, caulies and I'm still being asked for brussels so got a few packs in this week.  Might be worth a quick trip to your local centre  :)
