Of course, now I am feeling better, the weather has changed to grey, cloudy, with a cold wind.
The flash new cloche tunnel didn't survive the gusts for longer than a day, so that has been dispensed with. It wasn't really achieving anything anyway, and it is so mild so far this year, I think the beetroot seeds will manage quite nicely without it.
I sowed some parsnip seeds (Trusty &True) beside the beetroot. I hope I have better luck this year than last which was a complete no-show except for the one parsnip which came up in a completely different place.
The pram and I transported the broad bean plants to the plot yesterday and I raked the bed over, but my visit was curtailed by lack of oxygen to the lungs and a change in the weather, so I parked the trays of beans in the cold frame to keep safe until another day.
It is not so cold today, still pretty windy and grey, but I am feeling lots better, so I went this morning, to plant the beans out. They look nice and healthy, some are a bit small so I have left them in their pots to develop a bit more, and have only planted out the biggest ones.

I will put supports in later.
