            The best laid plans... Saturday was great and I got everything done that I wanted to. I was going to plant the onions on Sunday and finish the other jobs, but a family emergency put a complete stop to gardening, so none of that got done.

                    • This week I are mostly:-

                      Moving 2 gooseberry and three blackcurrant bushes to the clean site of the new fruit cage ready for it's delivery sometime this week.
                      Potting up some of the seedlings and moving those appropriate to the unheated greenhouse ( looking like the night frosts are over locally for a few days at least). Adding polythene and fleece cover to pull up on future cold nights.

                      Expecting wind and rain about midweek but higher temps so not all bad.

                        • Busy,busy, busy. Search seed box and see what else needs sowing. Lots already sown (probably too early as usual?)

                          Try and formulate a general plan in my mind of where everything is to go. Won't be at plot today, too much to do, but may get there tomorrow and get a few onion sets planted.

                                *this compost was from a half used bag stored over winter in the garage, something I have done numerous times before. The mushrooms are pushing the compost up and out of the pots (some are upto an inch across) and I have no idea if the seeds will survive.
