Pushing forward

Once again dodging showers but managed to finish the middle bed ready for planting and make a start on digging over the last bed again.

Between the showers, another bed under way

I managed to dig over a fair bit of the second plot today, dodging the showers....

More progress and a diversion for bad weather

Between the showers, I managed to put in 2 more rows of spuds, earth up the spuds in the main bed and put in a row of cabbage in the top bed which I decided to cloche to keep the pigeons off. Then it really started to rain so I resorted to DIY....

I put in a long awaited loft ladder and hatch and ended up with a lot of nice pine so I went really mad and used it to design and make a really cool tool chest to bring all of my small stuff together in one place.... quite pleased with it.

...the fruit trees are in leaf...

...the grass seed is coming up fast under the trees..


and the rhubarb is growing strongly.....
