The potatoes we planted last week have already begun to sprout leaves. We need to keep covering the 'haulms' with compost to create more potatoes, and of course the watering needs to be done.
With weather as warm and glorious as it has been over the last week or so, it's hard to believe it's still only Spring. These stunning double-daffodils are quick to remind us.
We did manage to get some of the seeds sown, but these have had to be put into the coldframe in the Wildlife Garden as we haven't had our greenhouse erected yet (and mine is full-to-bursting)
We concentrated today on sowing sweet peas, sunflowers and pumpkins. The latter we hope will feature in the school's Harvest Festival and Halloween Disco.

This cheeky chappy shows us how hard the hanging baskets have been working over the last few months. In the next few, they will be replaced with summer bedding. Lets hope they have just as lovely weather as the Pansies have enjoyed.
