The continuing tale of Monbiot's vegetables

In the Guardian letters page today, an update:

To my own surprise, and doubtless to Sarah Loving's (Letters, March 5), five of my 11 vegetable species have so far reared their heads. Ever the optimist, I confidently await the rest. This unlikely success could be to do with the fact that I put the beds under cloches. But the more probable explanation is that the sun shines on global-warming campaigners.

George Monbiot

So, could it be that the planting of vegetables is, in fact, a completely crap test of changing climate?
