It's amazing how much less squeamish you get about squashing little green caterpillars with your fingers the more of your precious leaves they eat.

I pulled some of the leaves off the brussels sprouts branch today so the little sprouts can grow. Come along, little sprouts.

Something, I suspect a bird grabbing the slugs, did for most of my carrot seedlings. Partly, yay birds but mostly damn. Time to deploy the net thingie. Everything else seems okay. Picked and ate two sugar snap peas which is instant gardener's reward. They're not as sweet as the earlier peas but still crunchy and refreshing.
