Very busy week as spring is here.

One job I've been waiting to do was this Pallet Fence, the old one, also made from pallets about 10yrs ago, was rotten and falling over after the strong winter winds! 
As you know I've been collecting Pallets for ages, so I nailed 2 together, making a 6ft panel, then suspended between posts, so the base is just above the soil so it wont rot away again, It's 31ft long & it took me 11 hours over 2 days to do! But only a third of the length of our plot, so more to do later in the season.
Anyway today I dug up the last of the Mammoth Leeks, not as big as they should be but they were in the way of where the Spuds will be going in. 
The spuds are 'chitting' well, at home and ready to go in, 4 more varieties, so that's another job for next few weekends.
I have been saying it for weeks now, but finally the 'Stockbridge Arrow' Rhubarb is growing, now its milder and sunny, had rain too, which is good for growing. Won't be long before we get the 1st harvest this year.
Hope you can see this, the Frog spawn in the pond is changing into tadpoles, they are moving and you can see the shape changing from a black dot to a tadpole. It's so exciting to see nature at work.
Anyway we only spent a few hours today, it was wet all morning and as I had been down in the week (fence building) there was plenty of weeding to do, but its all looking good. 

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
