Beautiful Day ...blue sky ..warm sun...there was a frost last night and i lost some batavia seedlings which were in the mini greenhouse covered in fleece. Carrot seedlings in bucket survived.

Also put up the 'tent' ready for strawberries and put down some plastic under the cloche ready for the parsnips.
