The onion family is looking slim, but perky
The winter onions have struggled through with some losses, but the survivors have potential.
The row of broad beans sown in February. Five survivors. These are about the same size as the ones sown in seed trays (and kept in the shed) a couple of weeks ago.

Planted the potatoes in bags and boxes this year to see if it works better than in the ground.
Certainly easier than all that digging trenches and earthing up. Did I say I wasn't going to do potatoes this year? I think I must say that every year, but I found a few leftover potatoes from last year, chitting all unasked by me, in the garage, so I thought "waste not, want not".
I came across the little soldier lounging in the sun under an apple tree, on a soft bed of dried leaves. Shame the orange peel spoils the idyllic scene. Just hope there are no enemies lurking in the shrubbery..he's just not battle-ready.
