I don't think I really appreciated quite how important it was to schedule the planting to avoid having everything becoming ready at the same time.

Cooked up some of my own mangetout last night and although they had gone a little too late(the seeds were developing into peas), they were officially the nicest I'd ever tasted. No bias of course. Looks like it's gonna to be spud-lifting time soon...
