Oh island in the (almost) sun

The weather cheered up a bit, just a litle bit, not to the point of real sunshine. So I took some seed trays to the plot and surveyed the ground to see if it was suitable for planting potatoes (or should it be sowing potatoes as they are seed potatoes after all).  All pretty wet but if it stays fair, I might be able to get them in tomorrow afternoon.

The pond is still in a pretty raw state, the recent rains have topped it up...

and has been colonised already by a floating island of insect larvae

I went back to the plot this afternoon thinking that I could perhaps put some of the taties in, but when I dug down a few inches I struck water.  So maybe not.
