    Default What I intend to do today/tomorrow!

    This is the forerunner to http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...7-a_92103.html
    Tell us what you intend to do today, or tomorrow, then report back on how much you achieved
    It may be only one thing, and it doesn't have to be a big job, but, as long as you do it, we'll be happy

    Tomorrow I intend to mow the paths, remove old things and sow new ones in one raised bed and plant out the second. And possibly weed bash.

    can`t plan anything, as I have a pup to watch and a wife to run after, but do hope to put some window sill tomatoes into their final pots, and if I get time collect some compost material I think VC calls it weeding
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Make hotbed for melons - done
    Remove bolted leeks and broccoli
    Plant out celeriac, runner beans and outdoor tomatoes
    Weeding
    Cover paths with weed suppressant fabric (old stuff is disintegrating)
    Watering (greenhouse) - done for Sat
    Harvest cucumber - done
    Harvest calabrese

    At home (afternoons)
    Sow runner beans that have chitted - done, may need to repeat tomorrow as some have not chitted yet.
    Pot up candytuft seedlings - done
    Plan next round of planting in buckets - in progress
    Pick ripe tomatoes - done for now
    Check nasturtiums and remove any blackfly - done for now
