    Dug over the potato bed. Absolutely knackered after doing so!

    (yesterday!)

    planted out peas, broadbeans and sweetpeas. Sowed spinach and rocket.

    Cleaned out shed, the aim being to give my kids somewhere to lurk while we do the plot. Took a carload of unusable (really properly unusable) junk to the tip.

    evacuated mice

    started digging potato trenches

    Up again today to finish (hopefully) potatoes and sort out an overgrown grape vine.

    Have cleaned off and re-erected patio table and chairs, priorities and am currently enjoying a cuppa sat at them watching all my plants grow in the sun.

    Today: Hoiked all the pots out from the back of the shed. Planted some more leeks, and some more carrots in pots outside.

    Sowed 4 kinds of tomato, and sweet and chilli peppers. Potted on my aubergines, which are now looking very sad indeed- hope I haven't killed them off! Put aubergines on windowsill with bottle cloches (more an anti cat device than anything else, last year my horrors munched all my seedlings and I had to buy plants) and put the peppers and tomatoes inthe propogator.

    Planted some el-cheapo dried marrowfat peas that I will use as pea shoots in salads, plus some more salad leaves, shoved them all into the plastic greenhouse.

    In the past week I dug up some more space for veggies out front, planted rhubarb crowns and first earlies at the allotment, started putting in a few faised beds and did an awful lot of digging!

    Cleared the pots and trellis from the left side of the garden for the new fence to be started tomorrow - no more patchwork fence - hurrah!
    Planted out the broadies at the allotment, now have 2 crops in the ground there.
    Sowed leeks, brokali Apollo, cauliflower, cabbage and sprouts and potted up 60 hellebore
    seedlings from last year.
    Tomatoes, peppers, chillis and aubergines looking good.
