as although much of the month saw unsettled weather, with plenty of rain and wind, it has remained relatively mild, and this week has seen two sunny mornings.
On Monday I tidied up the strawberry bed, where as you can see there are twelve plants well spaced so that I can walk and work between them. I must try to make sure that they don’t get swamped by the pot marigolds like they did last year.
Yesterday I hoed over the areas where I’ll be sowing broad beans and planting onion sets and the first early potatoes during mid/late March.
I’m pleased to see the crocuses ‘Blue Pearl’ and ‘Cream Beauty’ in the long planter,
There are plenty of other signs that spring is almost here.
Have a good weekend!
