Pdoc - what a lovely garden you must have ... a pair of dippers and a song thrush family on its way - very very envious.
I've just spent a lovely couple of hours pricking out the tomatoes and cosmos seedlings, taking salvia cuttings and sowing sweetcorn and pattypan squashes.
The tomatoes and cosmos are in the little greenhouse - will I be brave enough to leave them out there overnight, or shall I bring them in and put them on the dining table overnight ? ..................... just checked the Met Office website - I'll bring them indoors for the next few nights - the temp's going to drop to 1C tomorrow night - then things are going to be a bit milder after that.
I also pulled nearly 2.5 kilos of rhubarb from my one plant - and I still left one third on the plant ... it's in a big dish in the oven with some sugar and covered with foil. Some of it will be for breakfasts next week, and some will go into a Rhubarb and Custard Cake
