first day of spring

Sowed seeds directly into the soil; beetroot (Boltardy), turnip (Golden Ball), more parsnip. Put cloches on the seeds as it is still getting cold at night.
Raked beds, soil really dry, watered everything.
Picked a spring cabbage for tonight's supper.  It was very nice with the lamb shanks.
Really hot today, reached 22C at midday. Still no rain. Clear skies tonight so it will be cold tonight.
In the greenhouse the peas are coming through but no sign of any broad bean shoots.
