    Found a forgetten pack of winter onions, so planted them this morning... nothing to lose.

    Created 3 beds, set up holders for the ‘hoops’ and cut the hoops to size.

    Potting up more chilli babies (it's a daily event at the moment).
    Filled more pots. They're now warming in the propagator.
    Pulled the last of the carrots, weeded and covered the bed.
    Weeded all the tubs and pots in the little tunnel.

    Planted a lot of Elephant Garlic, saved from last year's crop. Some were huge, some were tiddly, but they'll all grow. I say that with confidence because they all had green shoots and should have been planted a few weeks back.
    I planted them in the E bed alongside some I planted last year. Hoping to have a permanent Ellie-garlic bed here.
    Lots of earthworms in the soil - so I put my helpers, the chooks, into the raspberry run as I didn't want them to eat the worms.

    Weeded and raked the soil, felt surprisingly warm to the touch. My garlic has not sprouted yet and it has been in a week??

    One mans trash is another's mans treasure and all that!
