Work has continued a pace at PTC but the weather has not been cooperative and persistently heavy and late frosts have meant that potato planting and vegetable seed sowing is much later than usual. Good Friday was the day when I managed to get in 4 rows of potatoes, a row of peas and another of broad beans - a whole 15 days later than last year when I did it all on 1st April. Having said that, we had a two week spell of very cold and wet weather last year and not much likes sitting in cold and wet soil!
I really have to ration our vegetable selection as the plot isn't very big so I go for the ones we eat and enjoy the most! I'm also keeping room for a row of Helichrysum flowers which I plan to sneak in somewhere!!
