Lift off

All systems go, spring has sprung, vernal equinox and all that. Busy sowing under glass today for planting out in about six weeks when the soil's warmed up: sweet peas, snapdragons, carnations and cabbages. And the tomatoes, a trough of carrots, a pot of salad leaves and some wildflowers.

Out on the plot I've finished the digging and the spinach is recovering from the cold and starting to green up. I've dug up the last carrots and stored them in sand, there's still sprouts for eating but the leeks have finished.

Wow, I've been away from the computer a few days and you've been busy! Your work looks great! I see your b. sprouts and am jealous! I never seem to get to enjoy them before the aphids invade. Last year the aphids were awful and the sprouts were blown early it seems. I give up but I do have one leek left to enjoy and lots of goodies sprouting on my window sills.
