The carrots are doing really well, really chuffed lets hope the dreaded fly stays of them this year

the poly tunnel is up and our tomatoes/obergenes and chillies are settling in although they still seem a little frightened, we have left the stucture a little more open this year to try and stop it getting as hot as last year...although it wont be difficult in this weather
