The last week has continued the manic theme from the week before: usual picking/weeding/sowing/planting/random craziness characteristic of this time of year. I am trying to pause at lunch though, and smell the proverbial roses (rather chat to the wildlife – good news: one of the frogs from the pond is back hopping around outside the tomato tunnel!).

I’ve finished weeding the parsnips though, hurrah; so I took a picture to remember what it looked like weed-free as it won’t last long. I’ve just put in the last of the late kales too, and planted more fennel, and sown some dill, coloured radishes, bronze fennel, and coriander. Hopefully the forecast rain will settle everything in well, and bring on the next lot of lettuces that went in last week.
