But progress nonetheless!
I managed to get all the early potatoes in the ground before the end of April (just!), along with onions and beetroot.
In the greenhouse, the tomatoes are settling into their growbags and I’m rushing around trying to find enough containers to take all the chillies, peppers, aubergines and cucumbers that have all germinated with impressive success and are just waiting to escape their windowsill pots.
There’s blossom on most of our trees, the raspberries are waking up nicely and the currants and gooseberries are dripping with flowers too.
If I can just keep the weeds under some vague control, this year is shaping up to be a great one!
