New Season Begins


My new pond has had about 12" of water in it for the last few weeks, but by yesterday it had all drained away. We have had a few really good days this week, which by lucky chance has coincided with my week off work (half term), so I have been taking advantage. I have pruned all the fruit:


dug over the onion patch and the potato patch:

planted a row of shallots and sowed another row of broad beans. Maybe I've been a bit hasty but I got quite carried away. It is nearly March, and it has been very mild so I think I will get away with it. I've got my seed potatoes laid out chitting, and I've sown some leeks and sweet peas in the greenhouse.

You can't beat a freshly dug patch of earth - so satisfying!
