As well as an ingredient in potting mix I spread this compost across the beds and rake it in to give a really nice sowing and planting surface.
Because I practice no-dig the soil is like this for a good way down. Considering it started as heavy clay that's quite an improvement.
With daytime temperatures in the greenhouse up to 17 degrees by mid afternoon it was time to risk some early sowings. One tub of broad beans (Sutton) and one of peas (Meteor) for the first crops of the new season. I also put four spuds in a big fish box, a bit risky but, nothing ventured. The containers are kept covered until shoots are well up in order to conserve a little heat and keep out the mice. More sowings will follow on a regular basis until the greenhouse is full, by which time I'll be ready to fill it with tomatoes!!
