I shouldn't have to be seeking out the shade at this time of year but that's how it's been. Much too hot and still no rain - so much for April showers.
The cherry-plum, plum and pear blossom has been and and gone and the cherry and apple is out now - about two weeks early.
Eating fresh asparagus, spinach and purple-sprouting broccoli.
The first row of peas are planted out and there's plenty of seedlings on the go in the greenhouse and coldframes. All we need now is some rain.
