Plotting was put on hold for most of last week as apart from Sunday and Friday it’s been too cold with a bitter wind, and one morning there was ice on the dustbin lid pond. There’s been surprisingly little rain for weeks and the ground surface has dried out out so I did some watering on Friday.
Looking closely at the onion sets I can see that they’re beginning to sprout, and it’s always good to see new leaves on the blackberry bush and raspberries.
This morning I picked the first few rhubarb stems, with plenty more to come.
All the yellow daffodils have now mostly finished leaving just the white Thalia to enjoy.
Thankfully it looks like being slightly warmer, and less windy, from Tuesday onwards so I hope to plant out the rest of the potatoes over a few days.
Take care, and have a good week!
