    Having had a prolonged veg-free start to the year - I blame the weather and too many other things to do - I've finally managed to getthings started in the veg garden.

    I know it sounds like an excuse, but last year we started too early, everything grew too much before the weather was right for planting out/planting up and we spent a fortune on heating and supplementary lighting. This year we're taking a more natural, relaxed approach. Well, that's the plan (and the excuse) anyway
