Today, I got busy in the garden. I weeded out the Shallots. They are starting to push up strong-looking shoots, although it will be some months yet, before they’re ready for harvesting.
Then I tidied up the early crop potato bed, and applied some grass clippings as a mulch which will help keep water in the soil. They’re not anywhere near the stage of needing any earthing up yet.
Finally, I planted out both mint and basil, now that the weather is generally warmer, and hopefully the danger of frost has passed!
Then I gave them a good watering.
Finally, I sowed some tomato seeds indoors, and some mustard too.
