    My garden is proving to be very low maintenance, only greenhouse jobs for me this weekend, watering and doing the tommies armpits being the main thing and munching on peas and strawberries.

    • Weeding the onion beds outside if the weather improves (currently switching between being in the cloud and rain)

    I'm on standby to cover the strawberry bed with netting, in line with advice to reduce birds/animals getting caught up I shall be using a very fine mesh, so some fat bumble bees won't be able to pollinate the flowers, so I'm waiting until the fruit starts turning red.

    Not necessarily today or tomorrow, but "next":

    Plant out last of the courgettes, gourds and cucumbers.
    Investigate potatoes, both for tubers and the one that looks like it might have blackleg, and the one that looks generally unhappy.
    Weed.
    Weed some more.
    Think about repositioning and netting the blueberry pots.
