Hooray! Four whole days off work and all the time in the world to do ‘plot stuff’. Up at mtp everything is growing. The gutter peas are off to a flying start as you can see. The rocket I planted back in January is ready for its first harvest and the onion sets are starting to sprout. Today, I planted a second row of carrots (as per the Carrot plan), planted two more purple sprouting broccoli plants under the cloche, did various weeding duties and potted up some comfrey (to stop it spreading). The plot was buzzing with people, mostly planting potatoes. It’s all starting again! And… we saw three hot-air balloons, a sure sign that Spring is here in Bath.
