    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.

    Sowed the following squash, thanks to much advice last year on here about the tastiest varieties:

    Crown Prince, Butternut and Pink Banana.

    Also sowed courgettes: Black Beauty and Tondo di Piacenza (round ones!)

    Cucumbers: F1 Baby and Cornichons de Paris

    Melon: Emir and Ananas

    Celery: Loretta (I want to have the right to call myself Loretta and have babies......etc..)

    Sweetcorn: Prelude

    Mixed salad leaves pack

    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

    Sowed a row of Alderman peas.
    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 !

    My wife took me and my kids up a mountain for a nice ice cream and we come across this little fellow went to wilko and got some onion sets, weed fabric, a few pots and 2 gravel trays few bits and pieces! Popped to argos and bought a trampoline.

    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
