first thing in the morning I then turn the PC on to look at the Met Office local weather forecast for the day to check if it’s changed from the previous evening.
I prefer to go to the plot for a few hours after breakfast but the forecast on Friday morning was chilly and overcast then sunny from late morning onwards. Following an early lunch it was then much better so just for a change I went for a while in the early afternoon, when I generally pottered.
It’s been a sunny weekend so this morning I planted the first early potatoes Pentland Javelin and another row of onions Sturon. I then went across to the horticultural trading shed for tea, biscuits and a chat.
The forecast for the coming week is looking generally good so I’ll be planting the second early potatoes Charlotte and the rest of the onions. At home I’ll be sowing the first seeds in pots that I’m starting off on the windowsill. They’ll be the tomatoes and some flowers.
I’m pleased with everything so far and looking round it’s all looking good. For instance the hydrangea that I recently moved is showing plenty of new foliage and the rhubarb is growing well.
Have a good week!
