potatoes progress

The spuds in containers in the greenhouse are storming away after the recent decent weather. In fact, some are in danger of getting all 'leggy' so I'm going to start putting them outside during the day. It's a bit of a pain moving all the tubs back and forth but I still feel it's too early to have them outside permanently.

The pics were taken four days ago and they've come on since then.

And it's not just the potatoes. I have some strawberries in pots and a hanging basket also in the greenhouse and they are now flowering. Ooh, fresh strawberries in May!!
And while we're on the subject of flowers here's a close-up of some rhododendron blooms. This deep red one always flowers before the others but it is even earlier this year, having had flowers for the past week.

All that we need now is for some severe late frosts to put the kybosh on all this lovely progress.
