I planted the rest of the runner bean plants that were a bit slower to germinate. The ones I put in earlier are looking quite good. They had some really big first leaves on, which have caught the wind and are looking tattered, but the main stems are looking good and winding around the canes like they are supposed to.
Everything was looking surprisingly chipper, I thought it would all need watering, but even the tomatillos looked okay.
I gave the brassica bed the thumbs down. I picked the last lot of psb and dug the rest out. The caulis were about 2 feet tall, the cabbages were teeny and the psb was just about finished. All the labels had strewn themselves about, so it could have been the cabbages that were 2 feet tall and the caulis tiny. Whichever way it was, they are on the compost heap now.
I did a cursory ph test on the bed after the brassicas came out and it looks to be pretty acid. On checking, cucumber likes a fairly acid soil, so that is where some of them are going(I have two kinds growing and apparently I should keep them separate as La diva shouldn't be pollinated, but Marketmore 76 should.) I didn't find out what kind of soil the courgettes like but I'm guessing that they like similar conditions to cucumbers so I can put some there too.
