    Fed and watered the plants: lots of liquid gold diluted 10:1. Garden is looking parched, this spring seems really dry. All my Brassica's have been devastated by something over the last few weeks, all of them seem to be nibbled and sulking, luckily I have a second sowing of most of them in the greenhouse. Hand pollinated the dwarf peach tree, then left it out for a few hours to hopefully get some insect loving. Strawberries from seed removed from cloche, still tiny but perfectly formed! Mangetout peas starting to put out climbing tendrils.

    picked some perpetual spinach for dinner (was lovely)

    planted out 3 lots of potatoes in potato planters. 1 1st early (red duke of york), 1 2nd early (smiles) 1 maincrop (belle de Fontenay), even labelled them so I know which is which!

    made 28 paper pots with my new toy a paper potter and put in propagator for tomorrow when I will start planting runner beans (from last years crop) , tomatoes and courgettes. Weeded and forked over the raised beds.

    Didn't have time to post yesterday...

    After getting most of the garden sorted now, we have started to put things in place.
    OH (Dazzlar3) yesterday moved the garlic to where it was going, and out of 32 started in modules 30 managed to survive. So i'm well pleased (even though i started them upside down)...
    Moved red onions from modules they seem all root but put them in the garden anyway.
    Moved 15 strawberry plants in there raised bed area.

    Had a general tidy up of the garden, OH got together all the old wood thats left over from project and started to bag it up.

    Also sowed alpine strawberries. We now have glass in the greenhouse so these went in there. Also had a looked at what we could sow now we have a working greenhouse.
    Looked at other seeds and a few have germinated.

    Just hoping for another nice day so can get more done.
