Happy that the fence is back up but it really needs painting. Lots of weather both a heatwave and lots of rain. Frost returning in w/c 10/05/20 according to Derek The Weather. Getting compost has been difficult but Aldi has rescued me a number of times. Whilst food shopping, not on a separate journey. The Blue Danubes (maincrop) have finally pushed through and the Red Duke of York have started to flower. Indoor Spring Onions and the outdoor Summer Onions are coming on well. Lettuce (mixed) are making good progress and the indoor seedlings – Tomato, Peppers and Cucumbers are all to schedule. I think there will be Strawberries by the beginning of June. The weeds, well they seem rather weed killer resistant. Staying safe.

March was a funny month as I’m sure you all can guess. So with the fence being mostly down and the Corona Virus, nothing much happened. However the fence is now back up, I have 13 seed potatoes (Red Duck of York) planted in various bags and containers. However, I’m now out of compost and I can’t just pop out to get some. The Summer Onions are coming on well and I’ve planted some maincrop sets to replace those that failed. On the indoor front. I have planted, White an Red Spring Onions, Lemon Basil and Garden Mint. Oh and I think we are having a drought. 2020 is turning out to be one hell of a year.
