|Transplanted tomato plants|
First lawn mowing of the year done. This task has been made a lot easier by having had the lawn mower serviced and the blade sharpened. I created a new compost heap after reading an article on the internet (where else?) of layered leaves and grass cuttings. It would seem the leaves help to compost the grass. We will see!
The weather has been very good this week. Warm and sunny only to be broken on Saturday by clouds and then rain overnight.
Poly Tunnel update
Broad beans have germinated and are growing daily.
Transplanted Parsly Mossed Curled - I happened to have some plants in a pot that I had sowed at the back end of the autumn and had survived the freeze.
Sowed leeks, corriander and spring onions.
All other plants continue to grow, grow, grow! The celeriac and purple sprouting have now been removed. It was unfortunate that most of the celeriac was frost damaged. I will be growing these outdoors this year.
On the sheep front our two lambs turned out to be twins after all. Mrs Sheep gave birth to a male lamb and rejected it. My daughter has been bottle feeding it and busy working out how to hand rear it, however, the lamb is thriving on her care and attention.
