Broad beans growing under clouch , not that big but growing 

Spring onions going well

Hello , on Thursday I gave a Hawthorn tree in garden a major prune and in the process of shredding it  and any bit to big for shredder ,  I will put on the fire 🔥 , over years has proved a good investment 

Potatoes 🥔 , you might find they will start to sprout anyway if they do I would put them in trays , personally I use old egg boxes which stops them touching each other , just in case any go off
