27 April 2012
The sowing and planting this year has gone well so far.
The Broad beans planted last Autumn are looking very healthy and are now in flower.
Now that the soil temperature has reached 10C/50 F we can start sowing all our root crops and peas into their seed beds. Lots of salads some peas and brassicas and leeks are waiting to be released from the cold frames very soon when they are “hardened off”
The many potatoes are slowly being planted as soil conditions allow.
As we have a well drained sloping site we are filling the potato trenches with lots of organic material, shredded paper, good home-made compost and grass cuttings before planting the potatoes. It is hoped that this will give us some insurance against drought conditions
Climbing, dwarf and runner beans are being started off site in my greenhouse ready to plant out as soon as the risk of frost is over .
