Potted on my one chilli that has two true leaves.
Pruned and fed a rose bush.
Planted some strawberries in hanging baskets.
Sowed some lavender.
Bought a rhubarb plant to put in the ground tomorrow.
And also added a second compost bin to my "recycling centre".

Broad beans "Express" and "Lincoln" peas both planted out today. Protected by cloche until established.
Also moved from home to lottie, well used mini-greenhouse. Going to use it inside the polytunnel as staging for lots of plants.

Potted up the new red rose bush
Potted up the new white rose ... that isn't ...
Helped a neighbour lay a soaker hose and figure out how to close off one end and connect the other to plain hose without proper fittings
Researched a few companion plants
Resisted the urge to buy said companion plants just yet
Went a few miles North up the motorway for to watch Derren Brown on stage
Got back late (or early this morning), opened a can of cider and watered the seedlings
Still no signs of life from one of the chilli varieties, the strawbs are being painfully slow to develop, and I'm starting to wonder how long I can realistically keep the melon plants, dahlias and queensland arrowroot on the windowsill

Potted on to 3" pots tomatoes that had been sown in early Feb.
Weeded the broad bean bed.
Wifey pressure washed some of the paths getting rid of a lot of slippery winter moss and algae.I fear no beer

Managed to construct 2 double rows of netting ready for the mange tout, hopefully will be strong enough.
Removed netting from broad beans, make it easier for the bees to get to the plants, that are looking quite good.
Had a joint whinging session with another 'lottie', chatted to another about getting lost whilst looking for bags of 'year old rotted stable manure,' and allowed another Lottie use of my plot for an Easter egg hunt, for his children, now i'm thinking, but it's not Easter today it's Mothering Sunday. Confused !DottyR

Put the netting up for my Telephone and Purple Podded peas then planted out Broad beans that I'd grown in loo rolls. After that it was shuffling things from the GH to my tin bath (aka cold frame ) and I've just bought the toms out of the Gh back on the bedroom window sill.
Plus we opened up the trailer tent for the first time this year, love the smell of canvas
