We're back to normal British weather: mild and wet. Mind you, it's far from tropical and the ground is still waterlogged. The germinated leeks, lettuce and calabrese which were growing on a window sill are now in the unheated greenhouse. There are no frosts forecast for the next three or four days at least so they should soon get used to being where it is cooler.
Planted another four Lady Christl potatoes in containers in the greenhouse which makes twenty-two earlies growing under cover. The rest of my spuds will go in the main plot when the ground is workable, at least another three or four weeks yet.
Last year I put some blackcurrant cuttings in a deep pot and noticed today that the buds are starting to open. I don’t need any more blackcurrant bushes but sometimes I just like to do things because I can. Once they’re rooted and potted on I’ll give them away.
No pictures of the garden today so I thought I'd let you see one of our famed Solway sunsets.
