It was raining this morning so I went into the greenhouse to do a little more transplanting. I needed some more Bedfordshire Champion onions so I put these into sectioned trays. Winter cauliflower and broccoli was sown, although this may be very early to do this. I also put in some runner beans to see if I could keep them alive until they go into the ground at the end of April.
Then I went down to the allotment where I spent the rest of the day putting in sweet pea canes. It takes an interminable time to do them all but now they are finished I can get on with planting the sweet pea plants.
Tomorrow I will plant some carrots and parsnips. I will cover the carrots with enviromesh using the wire cloche supports. I will take the enviromesh off the leeks because I am going to use the leeks. I will also plant one line of 20 early potatoes. These will be red Duke of York.
I have weeded between the tulips, which are flowering now about a month earlier than they should be.
Today it sleeted, hailed, rained and was very warm in the sun. Typical English weather.
Time for a cup of tea.
