Hello , just having a couple beers before dinner , we have been up at allotment today 

Dug bed and planted first early potatoes , Swift , should be ready in 7 weeks , never grown these before 

Also dug a bed for secound earlys , hard work as I had never dug this bed properly before , got lots of horse tail out , will dig again before planting 

Broad beans got battered by snow from Friday 

O/H did lots of weeding 

Also put up arch bought from Aldi last year , can't believe how big it is 

Do not have a slug problem but have shredded material on path but do put pellets in glass jars on each bed 

Curry plant in a tyre has a nest with baby birds in , amazing !

Hope alls well with everybody
