Yesterday was another sunny day so I spent the morning plotting. I dug over several small areas where I’m going to grow the tall single sunflowers. It was warm enough for several ladybirds to be active on the woodpile.
The yellow crocuses were open in the sunshine and honey bees making the most of them.
This morning started sunny but it soon clouded over and was starting to rain as I walked home. Whilst there I looked at the compost heap which I’ve left alone since November and was pleased to see that there are lots of red worms in it, and that it’s good enough to turn out and use. I’d normally be hoping to do that during the next few weeks but this year I’ll probably leave it and just dig out a bucketful or two to use when I plant or sow the runner beans, sweetcorn and tomatoes during late May or early June.
Have a good weekend!
