From left to right; Beetroot (Bolthardy), Pak Choi, 4x rows of carrots which have germinated with just some gaps. the whole bed is covered with enviromesh to protect from the dreaded carrot fly. After taking the photo I thinned out the Pak Choi to use as salad leaves and allow the others to grow on. I also thinned the beetroot which are doing well.
I usually sow seeds into trays at home and transplant out when strong enough, I don't think any of these root veg like disturbance once settled so planting in the covered raised bed helps germination and gives them some protection. The Pak Choi is not a root crop but I thought they may appeal to the birds so covering is a must.
I continue to pick lettuce and have set replacement seeds to keep a succession of salads for the summer, we had a bit of a Spinach glut too and have to keep cutting to stop it going to seed.
