Well the. 2 beefiest courgettes are now planted out, in beds of 50/50 compost & leaf mould with a handful of cluck muck.they are gazing in wonderment at the outside world through their cozy cloches. Decided to let the runt of the litter grow on a bit more. Moved camassia, planted out some kohl rabi, which I've never eaten but I love their Sputnik appearance.

We are trying a purple kohl rabi this year figrat - we haven't grown it before but someone on the allotments gave Barry some to try and it was lovely

I hope you feel better soon Inka

I have taken the plunge and planted up 4 of my 5 window boxes today - if it does turn cold again I can easily cover them with fleece

Tomorrow I am moving the 10 baskets out of the greenhouse - every time I bend down for something and then stand up I hit my head on one or the other  Barry is going to wash the greenhouse glass for me then we can plant the tomatoes into their final positions  

Plant ID please
