Sunday 9th May lots to do

All the potatoes are up, so using my draw hoe, I earthed them up again, the hoe also cuts the weeds that pop up due to the sun & rain we have had.
Jo weeded around the broad beans & peas using the draw hoe too.
You can see the Charlotte spud shoots just before earthing up.
The peas are doing well, its lucky we have had rain since planting, it always helps & our rain butts are nice and full again!
One of our strawberry beds, all the plants have flowers now & some strawberries are forming, so wont be long now, as long as the sun keeps shining.
Our new fruit trees have taken well, the pear tree has even a flower, see below.
Jo weeded around the garlic, lettuces & parsnips.

Looks a lot better.

Here is a close-up of the pear blossom. 

Not grown pears before so in a few yrs we hope to have a few to try.

The apple tree blossom is in full bloom, so another bumper crop this year.
So Sunday was a good day, I carried on working in the greenhouse, making better deep beds and it was hot in there! 

Jo weeded all around and planted some marigolds near the tomatoes & spring onions. We harvested peas from the greenhouse and more rhubarb for a crumble too. 

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
