Welcome to the forum, I think you may be our first member from the IoM. It'll be interesting to hear from you how things are different climate-wise there  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Hi there, sounds like you have plenty of space? What will you grow?

We are currently locally free of covid - no masks, everything open. We still get cases from travellers, but they should be isolating for 14 days so no community spread.

This year we are hoping to grow just a few potatoes, red and white onions from sets, some Suttons Brassica collection (sharing with daughter), garlic and carrots. Going to make a couple of raised beds in the middle of the field. The bottom end is flooded at the moment, so that will pretty much stay as meadow.

In general when it is dry and hot in the UK, it is dry and not too cold here. When it is cold and wet in UK, it is normally not too cold but wet here. TT week in June is usually wet.
