Tuesday was a super sunny day. After a chilly start it warmed up nicely in the sunshine reaching 16.3°C (61.3°F) in the afternoon sunshine.
The allotment beds have dried out reasonably well although there's still some very wet areas but the bed where I'm planning to plant our 'experimental' potato crop dug over well.
All that needs to be done now is for the weed control fabric to be positioned and our crop of new variety potatoes can be planted through it. We have five tubers of each new variety which are Setanta, Amour, Vivaldi, Blue Belle, Orla and Valor.
Amongst the weeds growing beneath the greengage our first bluebells are coming into flower.
