So today I planted out the globe artichokes which I had started off indoors. They won't give anything this year but we'll leave them in situ and see what happens next year.
I also planted out a few more runner beans even if I will end up eating them all myself. They are in the vegetable garden.
Also planted out the courgettes - these are "Eight Ball" which is a round courgette and great for stuffing. Will also plant a few regular shaped ones for ratatouille. Not bothering with growbags, they are outside in the vegetable garden just in the ground. They might crop less than with the growbags but we usually have more than we need anyway.
Then weeded all the onions and even took some of the worst weeds out of the carrot tunnel. I'm not sure why we have s many weeds this spring - Is it the lack of snow in the winter? Maybe it's the cow manure we laid down in the autumn. Or just the hot spell followed by the rain. Anyway... it is very, very annoying.
The beetroot are coming through, so are the carrots and the jerusalem artichokes (all over the place) and I'm still eating sorrel omelettes and asparagus risotto. We'll have strawberries for midsummer this year!
