Nothing planted out yet

hi all, I am so worried, beacause of the horrendous weather we are having, and have had I have not yet been able to plant out my peas and broad beans. In fact I'm sure the bad weather did not help in the germination of the beans and peas.  It it just me, am I being a drama queen??

    It's either been to cold or wet to plant out here in Lancashire. Had planned to plant out spuds and broad beans today but it was bitter cold this morning and forecast rain next weekend.

    Germination of broad beans and peas has been surprisingly good not the case with other veg though. My broad beans were sown in February in the GH and  peas a few weeks ago and all are up.

    I planted some broad beans but they're a no show so far. They're even under a closh. I've got my onions and garlic out, planted some potatoes last week but nothing else. Only the garlic is showing so far so I may have been a little too eager.

    I'm in SW France and I sowed broad beans in pots in the cold frame. They were doing well until mid February and we went to the UK so I left the cold frame lid open and there was too much cold, wet and even snow and they've rotted. A couple of days ago it didn't rain so I thought I'd prepare a bed in the veg garden and sow some more direct, but the ground is unworkable it's so wet. I haven't started the veg garden yet.

    It's hard to weed the flower garden the earth is just too wet.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
