The lettuce,  spring onion and beetroot has germinated.  Plus a few more potatoes and loads of chickweed instead on my peas!  Where are the peas!
Some fox decided to dig a big hole too.
Pulled some rhubarb and watered.

Sieved and sowed another box.  Spinach. Lovely in omelettes and soup. 

The radishes and rocket have germinated AND a potato... Just the one!

David did a few repair jobs with Jack helping.

Our neighbors very kindly gave us some parsnips and leeks too. Thank you!

Sowing outdoors

Three and a half hours today... Lovely and sunny.  A few people there today.  I sowed  the following in one box.  One row of each.

Spring onion (sentry)
Beetroot (chioggia)
Radish (scarlet globe)

Then I filled another bed with peas (douce Provence ). I covered these with netting

Here's my collection....

Oh the excitement! Just watered my seeds at home and the Mangetout and Courgette have also germinated

A quick hour....

Jack came with me, just for an hour.  Sieved some soil,  bit of weeding and three barrows of leaf mold. The raspberries have also survived their move! 
Good news too... My broccoli and basil seeds have germinated at home.

Jack came with us to the Lottie this morning.  He was really helpful!  Many hands make light work.  He did get an ice cream on the way home!
Barry offered us some raspberry canes last week so David dug those up and I planted them. Quite a few so chuffed to bits.
Filled up a couple of more beds with soil and leaf mold.  Watered a bit,  weeded a bit then cycled back home.
Am also pleased as the celeriac seeds have germinated on the kitchen window sill.
Pricked out tomatoes red pear,  the mixed leaves and cabbages.  They are now outside in the pop up greenhouse.  Hope they survive!
