Getting Growing

It has all started to get growing now that we've had a bit of good weather. Probably a bit too good weather in fact, it's not rained for what seems like an age now and the wind still rips across the site drying everything out.

This is the seedbed with the radishes showing well. There are also the first signs of some spring onions, carrots and lettuces in there. The parsnips haven't started to come through but I'm not too worried about that yet.

The strawberries that we planted through some weed fabric. These do need netting off to stop the ripening berries being got before we get them.

The sweetcorn inside it's windbreak netting protection. 19 plants, not bad considering that they were bought for £1.99 in a tray with 9 modules in. They've been growing at home waiting for a suitabe day after the bed was prepared - and the windbreak to be put up to protect them.

A general view of the plot showing that we have been working and cultivating it. I do hope it's all worth it in the end!

Right best get off to water everything in there.
