    Planted out some cut and come again lettuce, I have back supplies in the greenhouse if the weather turns cold though, just in case.

        It’s due to be very wet tomorrow, and I have a day off work so I’m planning to get creative with some woodwork, sewing or both!
        Hoping to get some carrots sown, so steady rain should water them in nicely!

          Today I started setting up my no dig beds, tomorrow if my body is willing I hope to finish them off and make them cat/bird/deer proof, I suspect I may not achieve all of these. Once the new beds are done I might start to sort out another area for veg.
          Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds!
          Always aim for the best result possible not the best possible result

                      The strawberry isn't quite ready today, lack of sunshine, sowed the last of my carrots in the " roots " bed as all the others are germinated and growing, also sowed some more radish. In the greenhouse it's doing the tomato plants armpits and watering, then round the flowers with a small paint brush buzzing like a bee...……………...do I need to do the peas is my question for today lol.

                          Mostly checking to see what damage that wind is doing, calmed down from last night but still very rough out there.
                          My seeds are all sown, so it's now weeding and transplanting of leeks and pricking out of cabbages over the weekend to do.
                          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.
