    Put netting over the veg plot, to stop the neighbours cat using it as a litter tray!

    Planted cheap Daffodil bulbs bought a few weeks ago (50p for a bag that had started sprouting!).

    Yesterday I cleared out the allotment greenhouse ready to dig it over and to add a load of leafmould and manure next weekend. On the polytunnel plot I dropped off half a dozen slabs and laid them to continue paths between the no dig beds.

    Today, in the kitchen I am making another batch of sweet chilli sauce which just flies out of the cupboard into peoples hands.

    I have potted up some clematis twigs from the one nearest the house, it is showing signs of buds already. Its not the right time of year according to my book but its an experiment. What's the betting that the dogwood sticks holding the plastic bag up roots and they don't? In the kitchen I have a batch of tomato sauce cooking for the freezer, I always have a supply, it goes with everything and is SO much better and cheaper than those awful jars.

    I have potted up my Rhubarb. I'm trying "Red Champagne" variety. Never grown it before. Has anyone else tried this variety and whats it like? I have grown it in a pot as I don't have enough space and only me and OH like it.

    Trousers and I seem to be meeting like 'ships in the night' lately, but when your Sunday Roast culminates in Red Cabbage, Swede, Sprouts, Roast Potatoes and a Turkey Leg, forgive us for not being 'bovvered'?
    I promise you, the taste of it all is just truly truly divine.
    Growing your own vegetables just has to be the only one thing that you aspire to this year. No compromise.
