We have sunk some plant pots into the ground in the middle of the runner beans so the water goes straight to the root

The runner beans are comming on well, but the slugs have helped them selves to a couple

The start of the poly tunnel we will try and get it finnished this week if ic an borrow a decent drill

Carrots and marrigolds to try and stop the carrot fly

Ive planted the chard in the middle of the other potatoes

The oinions are comming up fast

The lettus is comming up i reckon we will be able to have our first salad in the next couple of weeks

These are the corgetts green and yellow 15 alltogether

The romana spuds are in along side some rocket inbetween the drills as we are quickly running out of planting space.
