How it is looking so far...

Potatoes earthed up against the last frosts. The first broad beans are about an inch long. Small green strawberries. Peas and mange tout growing well but no flowers yet. 


There have been fewer ladybirds than last year, but the cold weather may have reduced their numbers.

Fig Tree

A new fig tree, it has taken a few weeks to show any signs of life but the warmer weather has brought it out at last.

First bean seedling

The first bean to break through. The blue dots are organic slug pellets.

Next crops

Things are starting to appear, except the parsnip and carrot seeds which seem to have rotted or been eaten. I'll clear that area and use it for the sweetcorn which is ready to go in. 

No idea where I'm going to fit in the courgettes, or resow the carrots, or add some more salad crops.

Annual weeds doing ok, but I've hoed the worst off for now.
