Potager progress

I ventured out to the potager this afternoon to check on the progress of the various plantings, which have all been under cover for the past week or two. The peas are coming along nicely....and the spinach and rocket likewise...
I have had a patch of soil covered by a cloche since last week in an attempt to warm the soil before planting out the beetroot modules and the two aubergine plants that I bought last week. With today's sun, I reckoned conditions would be right so got them into the ground before pulling the cloche back over to trap some more of the afternoon's sunlight. I also got the parsnips sown and some Charlotte potatoes planted into containers.
