The trials and tribulations of my attempts to 'grow my own' on a Cambridge allotment

Cabbages and leeks, all seem to have had a growth spurt (is that how you spell it?) since I gave them all a feed of stinky nettle tea - minging!!! The leeks are looking more like leeks rather than spring onions at last.
My son used to call stinging nettles - stinky nettles, a very appropriate name when you've had a whiff of the rank, rancid, foul smelling gunk - nettle tea - just as well the veggies seem to like it!
