Potato beds,Solanum tuberosum [[fam solanaceae] covered.
Apart from a slight touch of rain,yesterday held up well with just clouds and touches of sunshine.In the vegetable garden i worked in the brassica area for a few hours.More Cabbage and cauliflower plants were put down along with Turnip [rapa] seeds.After that i moved to the roots area and started more carrots,lettuce,and some spinach.All went well in the vegetable garden yesterday and was happy to be able to spend time getting down the Brassicas,Lettuces [satvia] Carrots [Daucus carota] Spinach [Spinacea oleracea inermis] and hope to return there this evening at some stage.Had the usual check on the tunnel and greenhouse.
One final step done with the potato beds around 9 o clock last night,and that was to cover all of them with newspapers.For the sake of about an hour,it is time well spent again the saving the baby stalks from getting damaged by ground frost.Those up about 30 cm maybe fine,but no chances taken.
