After a thunder storm has just passed by, I have to reflect on whether I have planted frost sensitive plants out too early this year. Really I would not be planting things like runner and French beans until the end of May. Due to the unseasonally warm dry weather in April, I have been lulled into a false sense of security.
The old saying is do not cast a clout until May is out and maybe that applies to delicate plants too. The courgettes certainly seem to be suffering. So too do the potatoes. Still I can't do anything about it now. The potatoes are almost 12 inches tall now.
Spent today weeding the onions and the leeks. Hoeing up the potatoes and weeding the roots. I have still got to weed the carrots and the parsnips and plant the Swiss Chard.
