Keep calm and carry on

Hopefully we've seen the last of the fraudulant summer, we can do without any more of that. The odd day of temperatures in the seventies in March hasn't been unusual in recent years but a week of it is right out of order. No rain of course, drought orders in the east and south east and threatened here in the east midlands. If this isn't global warming then I don't know what is.

On the plus side it's nice to see the trees greening up and the bees and blossom and it should be a good year for the butterflies.

Eating purple sprouting brocolli, carrots, scorenza and plenty of greens. I've planted out the first of the peas and sown another row direct. There's seedlings on the move in the greenhouse and the potatoes will be going in next weekend. All we need now is some rain.
