Our Main Crop Potatoes Planted

After a very chilly start to Saturday it turned out to be a lovely sunny day and a mild afternoon. We made the most of the fine weather to plant our second early potatoes, carrots and parsnips.

I think that as far as planting and sowing goes on the plot we have now caught up to a more normal spring, however, that’s being at the expense of leaving lots of tidying up of last year’s bed so we've still got plenty to do. One the plot, We are still waiting for the first fruit blossom. I did notice a bumble bee buzzing around the gooseberry bushes yesterday so there are some pollinating insects around which is a good sign.
