It has been a relatively quiet week and John went back to work on Tuesday. The weather has not been particularly kind and we hav enow swapped a cold icy breeze for warm gale force gusts.
On Saturday Biddle, Gardener Bunny and I went to the allotment to help with potato planting.
Although I think these two did more sitting than helping.
We have planted two varieties so far Pentland Javelin (earlies) and Anya (second earlies).
in these three trenches. The other varieties should be in the ground next weekend.
The garlic seems to be doing well.
These covers have now been moved and the pond uncovered
Hopefully over the coming weeks other things will be planted. It was lovely to hear all the birds singing and watch our pair of robins. However the best was saved until the afternoon at home when we watched Mrs Blackbird bathing in the birds water dish.
