          I have room for a few winter cabbages, sowed half a tray and they will need to be planted as soon as the weathers fit, a bit squally here just now.
          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                        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.

                          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.
                          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.
