Prepared area for potatoes with bit of hoeing and weeding. Picked couple of sprout sticks and a lone swede. Pulled up rest of turnips, salvaged a couple to eat.
Rescued my plastic bench from another allotment.
Bit of weeding around strawberries.

Lifted and trimmed leeks for dinner on the plot next-door.... moaned at the purple sprouting as it sill isn't.

Shut the cat in the shed unintentionally and then wondered where it was only to have it spring out at high speed when I put the tools away. Made me jump!

Checked on the shallots in the greenhouse.... Beginning to root.

lovely day up the plot and got a fair bit done, tied all the broad beans up as there getting quite tall now, weeded the asparagus and onion beds, dug me last parsnips and pulled a few leeks.

I keep popping tomato/pepper/other seedlings  up to the cold greenhouse, tucking them up under domes, and leave, thinking there's so much more to be done on the plot. Spent 5 minutes inserting some pea sticks and string into my over winter pea crop that are now out of their cloche.

Purchased battens and chopped up into stakes some battens to border my fruit bushes. Forked some festering couch roots onto the compost heap that had been soaking in water. Stacked some timber for a fire but didn't have a light.

another beautiful sunny day it was a pleasure to get stuck in, managed to dig 2 large beds over and sort the kale and purple sprouting nets out, i noticed one spear of purple almost ready for picking. sorted out the carrot bins all 4 of them and gave them some fresh soil for this year. i must say the plot is looking very good now i would say im pretty much ready for planting when the time is right.

Planted out two rows of broad beans. Finished moving some raspberry canes. Dug over another bed and covered it. Picked some sprouts and the last of the leeks. Pruned all of the old growth out of the tayberry and tied the new growth in.  Came home tired but happy.  The season has started at last!

Planted a red current and loganberry. Put some reclaimed decking around vines and fruit bushes. Had a fire.

Pruned the autumn raspberries, took the kitchen waste & added to the compost bins, then looked at the bonfire pile & decided it would all fit on the top of the ready to use compost under the lid to aid drying, so did just that although it involved a rather hefty rootball that required attacking with a saw & 2 forks to enable me to lift it. Came home a bit worse for wear after that

Well my broad beans have just germinated in the root trainers.  Another couple of weeks and I'll harden them off and then plant them out if it's relatively mild.  Potted on my Super Mamande tomatoes and some Jalapeņos today.  My garden raised bed designated for salary type things has been finally prepared ready to receive the first lettuce in a week or two.  All in all a good pottering today
