    Yesterday really - ventured to the plot for the first time in about 6-7 weeks! Lifted a bag of leeks - perhaps 4 pounds in weight and had a walk around. I was quite pleasantly surprised ... after the postings about burst water butts I was a little anxious, but all was well. The soil was light and well-drained, not what I was expecting. The PSB were still standing and looked OK! Garlic and shallots and over-wintering onions have all sprouted and seem 'happy'. Came away very much more cheerful than I went.

    Finally managed to plant some garlic (which is usually in by December) and have started some chillies off indoors. I think I'm getting my mojo back!

    I made soup today as well using a tray of grated courgettes I found in the bottom of the freezer.

    Brought in a small pot of compost (to thaw and warm up!) so I can sow 3 or 4 of my self saved Cayenne chillies which were fantastic last year - still using them dried.
