1st Week of March

I wish I could say that the first full week of March was as lovely as the end of February but sadly the weather has turned a little unsettled. With winds pushing 70mph at times it's not only been tough to do any work but difficult to even keep things held down! A brief respite in the wind did allow us to get up and do a little bit of work, the first lot of early spuds have been sown, I'll sow another row in a few weeks time so that they remain small and tasty through the short season. A session of seed sowing last week saw the first few cucumbers, courgette and some more tomatoes hit the compost and fill up our kitchen again, we've also sown a few more cabbages etc just in case of failures.

The Polytunnel very nearly gave up on us this last week, acting like a wind break it's taken a bit of a hammering! It's been redone now though with a much sturdier front frame!


The front of the tunnel bent out of shape! A new frame is holding it up now!

Maximizing space, we plan on growing salad crops in the guttering
