Thursday was another glorious spring day and this time, after a couple of near misses, we had our new warmest day of the year at 17.0°C or 62.6°F.
It was back at the end of January when we visited a local potato day held at the Horticentre garden centre. We treated ourselves to six varieties of potatoes we had never tried before. These have been happily chitting away in the greenhouse ever since.
They were planted on Thursday through weed control fabric so they can be left to get on with growing without any weed interference. That's the plan anyway.
Their positions have all been carefully noted so we will hopefully know which varieties are which when it comes to lifting them.
I've also put a little video together showing the blossom on our allotment fruit trees.
