Another busy morning up at the allotment defining the plot edges that had become overgrown in recent years. I’ve gained a few square feet and it all looks neat and tidy. Now I just have to dig over and weed the middle bit!
Back at home the spring flowers are in full bloom making the most of the lovely weather we’ve had recently. The main job was to thin out the carrots and parnsips in pipes down to two seedlings and I did the same with the stumps. The greenhouse is filling up with all sorts of trays and pots, broad beans, brussel sprouts, cabbage, calabrese, celeriac, sweetcorn, onions, leeks, celery, peas and mangetout. And there’s tomatoes, chillies, peppers and aubergines on the windowsill indoors. April will be a busy month with sowing, potting on and planting out. With a bit of time off over Easter I’m hoping to get ahead of the game or at least keep up!
