More Potatoes in Tubs

Sunday turned out to be a lovely mild March day as the temperature reached 15.3°C or 59.5°F the highest of the year. After a bit of a dull start to the day there was a decent amount of sunshine in the afternoon making it feel so much better. We decided on an afternoon at the allotment to get a little more tidying up done and to plant a few more potatoes in tubs.

We managed to pot another three tubs of Casablanca early potatoes. These will grow on in the plot greenhouse. They've joined the two tubs that we planted up a couple of weeks ago.

I reckon that the beds on our plot are still a bit too wet to dig over. I'm not too worried as I don't think I've anything that needs planting just yet especially as we have a few early potatoes planted up in those pots. A nice dry week would do the beds a great deal of good. Not being able to get any digging done I decided to do some tidying under our greengage trees.
I think that this will probably be the last of the major tidying up jobs to get done as attention switches to sowing and planting crops.

Sue did a bit more on our new bug hotel as well as some more weeding of our fruit tree beds
I've included a video of our gardening activities of the last few days.

By the time we left the plot on Sunday the sunshine had disappeared.
