raised beds working

Lots of water now

Back to standing water on the plot, but do I care?  The raised beds have worked well and everything looks fine, I had to plodge a bit to get to them, but the potatoes and peas look unaffected.
The mangetout peas are going a little yellow so I will give them a shot of something. Might be cold, might be nutrition, I will try sprinkling some ammonium sulphate along the rows.

Assembled and erected a frame for the runners.  I'm using an X frame this year, so I bought some new canes and used the sturdiest ones.  Apparently they sometimes snap with the weight of the plants at the top of the X if old canes are used.  Picture later.
