The first shoots from the onion and garlic sets I planted a few weeks ago are starting to show. The Autumn sown peas, broad beans and lettuce, both indoors and outside have begun to sprout and the lettuces will soon need to be repotted. We are currently in the process of clearing out the greenhouse and, outside, preparing the beds for next spring. The shredder will be working overtime for the next few days. While the soil has been too wet and heavy to dig we have been busy clearing the space for the polytunnel and today we more or less finished. Next stage is to lay a concrete base.
