Veg update

I'm sure you're all gagging to know what's happening to my vegetables. A brief summary...
  • Sweet peppers. Approximately six small seedlings (I haven't counted them recently) doing well
  • Coriander. Ditto.
  • Broccoli. Lots of seedlings doing OK. Some of their first leaves have gone a bit funny, but the second ones seem fine so far.
  • Chives. Seem fine to me. Plenty germinated.
  • Basil. Lots of little seedlings - they need moving into something bigger now as they're a bit crowded in their small pots.
  • Two new additions - Jalapeno and hot Thai chilli peppers. The Jalapenos have done better in the germination stakes than the Thais so far, but it's early days.
The 'vegetable patch' is still a shambles, as removing turf has proved TOO HARD so far! Will it ever be suitable for planting things in? Pass the rotivator...
