Every March I get worried that my love of growing food has gone. I really don't want to go outside and fiddle about with pots and compost.
Usually I get up just enough enthusiasm to start with tomatoes as they are so easy and never let me down and always, by the time they've got big enough to pot on my mojo has returned.
This year has been the same, thank goodness the sunshine arrived just in time, and at last I was out there before 7.30 on Thursday morning weeding the bit where the climbing French beans will go.
The second-early potatoes have gone in and first-earlies earthed up. I've emptied a compost bin onto the bean/pea bed and Col has sown beetroot.
For the greenhouse........... the sweet-pointy peppers and aubergine seedlings have been transferred into bigger pots and I have 2 cucumber plants left......one keeled over and all the tomatoes are looking good.
Now for a busy weekend with mangetout peas and sunflowers and other garden things.
Have a good weekend
