    Well I'm surprised at just how fast my potatoes are growing. I've earthed them up at least 3 times. I just want to have a peek and see if any potatoes are growing

    Well the sun was shining so I got quite a bit done. Put the butternut squash out to start hardening off.

    Potted up my tomatoes into 3" pots, planted out the lettuce and cabbage. Also planted out the dwarf kale and broccolli.

    Started off some courgette (free with GYO), basil, corriander and red brussel sprouts. All on the windowsill.

    Well for me anyway. I found it really hard to leave the house. Couldn't even get into the back garden. Stayed and hid in the house till later then realised I would probably have to water. Made myself go out and water then came straight back inside again.
