    Went to our local Lidl and found they had reduced the price of a bunch of soft fruit - got a blueberry and blackcurrant both with lovely new growth on, and 24 strawberry plants all for nine quid!!! Bargain. The strawbs are in flower too so they are off to the greenhouse for now until I get a growbag or hanging baskets for them.
    Happy Gardening,
    Shirley

    What I did today, I tidied up my greenhouse and planted some more seeds, Cauliflower 'All Year Round'- Cabbage 'Greyhound'- Summer Cabbage 'Golden Acre- Beetroot 'Boltardy'- Leek 'Musselburgh'- Carrot 'Early Nantes 5'- Parsnips- Pea 'Ambassador'.
    Went down to the allotment and started at long last on plot 41, Started putting up the fence and came home got a nice long soak in the bath and now having a bottle of wine, my friends who helped me today are also coming up tonight to join me for a wine & curry night.
    I have some great mates, wouldn’t be without them.

    Put in two more raised beds at the allotment while dodging the rain, snow and hail. Sowed 2nd batch of Peas in rootrainers, started germinating some carrots and parsnips. Threw out very leggy Tomato plant and freshened up my two yellow pepper plants.

    Alas, didn't manage to achieve anywhere near what I wanted to this week, but c'est la vie.
