So the rain's finally arrived this week but with it today a return of winter temperatures.
Hey-ho. At least it's been wet enough for me to crack on with some sowing and planting outside: the cornfield mix, another wildflower mix, half a row of carrots, the first cabbage patch and some trefoil for green manure. More sowing under glass too including the tender crops like sweetcorn and courgettes.
The orchard's looking fresh and green with the added bonus this week of more blossom: the cherry, pear and the first of the apple.
