    Finished digging over and edging with roof tiles the half a small bed (the other half has broad beans in it) that I started a few days ago. Then I sowed a row of beetroot in it.

    Started cleaning my chilli tunnel. Bob made me some more big plant labels.

    Checked the onion sets I planted a couple of weeks ago. Some just poking through - and showing pigeon damage. And a pigeon flew from a nearby tree as I was looking so covered crop with netting till a bit bigger. There seem to be more and more of the buggers in the area so may be shortage of food for them so will be trying to eat anything I plant.

    I also planted out my main crop potatoes. The spot is crawling with couch grass so will probably need weeding twice while they are growing then hopefull clear the weed when harvested.

    I also sowed some onion seeds, an old variety Lawrence D Hills recommended called up-to-date. I bit late but should have time to do something.

    Mulched my fruit trees and some of the fruit bushes with the scrap sheep's wool I got last year.

    Tidied and tied into a support pole the goji berry. It's a lot more upright now.

    Coppiced the last two willow trees at the allotment (the only two I didn't dig out last year).

    Started digging the third big bed. It hasn't been dug in years, by the looks of it. I'm having to double dig it as the sub-soil is both poor (it's bright yellow) and full of horsetail roots. Thankfully, I decided to plant all of my tender crops in that bed this year, so I don't really need it ready to plant until the beginning of May.

    My sister in law passed away in January and the last two months have been spent clearing her house to hand the keys back to the landlord. She loved her garden and had asked us to keep some of her plants - today I finished re-planting about 20 or so in our own garden. It’ll be nice to see them bloom over the summer; a lovely memory of her.

    Put some October sown perennial daisies in the flower bed now that they are trying to flower and I can see what colours they are likely to be. Grubbed up a few square feet of london pride to make room for some herbaceous potentillas and thrifts.

    Seed sowing.
    Dug over one of the raised beds.
    Put manure on another bed.
    Uncovered another 2 beds. Hopefully to dry a little more overnight. Ready for digging tomorrow.
    Cleaning more plant labels.
