    Today I've moved the germinated Black Triffele tomatoes and the strawberries from the heated propagator into the unheated one on the kitchen windowsill. Put some pots of previously sown but not germinated flowers into the heated propagator, along with an avocado stone on soil. I've had the stone suspended over water for the past 6 months and nothing's happened yet the stone still looks viable (I've done it loads of times before). anyway, we'll see if a bit of warmth will just start it off, my big one's getting a bit leggy

    Today we picked up my bus pass - then built the hen-house! We put on the automatic pop-hole opener too - and it works. I shouldn't be surprised, but somehow I am!

    Run next - then ... hens!

    They will however give you lots of seed for next year.

    Today I took our ham out of the salt, washed and dried it and wrapped it in muslin before hanging it out to finish air curing.

    Next our new leather reclining suite arrived and is now ensconsed in the lounge, I tested it out and promptly fell asleep in it for an hour.

    Finally, a parcel of over 40 different types of heritage pea arrived from the States, varieties include "Lord Leicester", "Mayor of Leicester", "Carters Battleship" and a host of others. Some research will now be needed to see how tall they all grow.

    Planted new plum tree (v.Opal). Washed the patio down, moved bird table further down the garden. Planted red currant bush and goji. Had a bit of a tidy up in the greenhouse.

    Removed dead acer

    Potted on tomatoes and tomatillo's as part of the early growing experiment.

    Set out and labelled seed potatoes for chitting.

    Checked shallot seed and 10 - 20 have germinated, Lavender seed has also germinated.

    I dug out loads of raspberry suckers ... I do this every year, and they always take over one corner of my plot.

    ...I ignored the inherited raspberry suckers as I haven't decided whether to grow these on or start again with new. If in doubt, do nothing.

    Instead I build the first of 8 raised beds - 20' by 4'. Hurrah - I am currently feeling very smug about this feat of construction.
