Late Spring Update

I thought I'd post an update on my plot
Everything is growing just lovely, I am surprised at how quickly they have come up and how healthy and strong they look, even though I am no expert gardener, and don't pander to their every whim. I pop down about once a week, have a little weed, give them a little water, throw down a few slug pellets, sing them a song and that's about it.
Look at this pre-veg, just look at it:
Potatoes:


Radishes


Carrotts


Turnips

Peas

Swede


Onions

Garlic

I am now number 7 excited on a scale of 1 - 10. There is no sign of any slugs, snails, killer pillers, black fly, white fly or anything, But I won't count my chickens before my eggs have hatched ... hmm, chickens ...

Am I proving that anybody with a bit of mud can grow veg?
