    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.

    Tied to the house most of the time waiting for updates, so very limited with what I can do.

    Yesterday I planted some Lillies, Lilly of the valley, Alstromeria and 3 pots of Freesias.

    Good day today I managed to sow the following
    Crimson flowered Broad Bean
    Dwarf French beans Gold
    Dwarf French beans Green
    Red Baron Onion
    - multi sown for spring onions thinings then the remainder left to grow out
    2 lots of Asparagus (Connors Colossal and Mary Washington)
    and some Begonia Sutherlandii not grow for years

    The plan for tomorrow is to test the electric to the greenhouse and see if the heated bench still works then sow
    Peas Douce Provence
    Potatoes Winston. Charlotte and Jazzy ( for a trial)
    Carrot Paris Market or some Nantes - I usually grow Amsterdam Forcing but I thought I'd have a change
    Might sow my tomatoes as well. Sungold, Moneymaker and Black Russian

    so that should keep me busy.
    and continue to tidy the greenhouses up and then Sunday a bonfire on the lotty ! All these sowings will be grown in tubs this year while I get the allotment sorted and the back garden sorted.
