Bean trench.

Dug the bean trench, filled it with semi-rotted compost and backfilled; ready to be sown and planted with bean plants in May. Dug up some small parsnips, and a few leeks which had more below the soils's surface than expected. The hardy blue leeks had survived the frosts well, but the yellow early leeks were ok too. The warmer weather has started regrowth on the black cabbage, and buds are showing on the summer raspberries.


  1. What's the infernal machine for?

  2. Tea; or coffee if I'm there on a Sunday morning.
