Nice drop of rain...

May can be a treacherous month. Hot one day, cold the next, that mean east wind - not fit for man nor beast as me grandad used to say, and he knew a thing or two. Still, we've had a nice drop of rain.

The broccoli's going to seed so now I'm reduced to eating the leaves like some kind of peasant. Not that I care. It still beats anything you can buy in the shops.

My first row of carrots were looking a bit hopeless - more gaps than carrots so today I've filled them in. And sown the maincrop. Things are moving fast from greenhouse to coldframe to plot; I've planted out the cosmos and a few lettuce today. And earthed up the spuds. Not a bad days work really, in between the showers.
