Orla my Niece done her sowing yesterday evening.

Started off here damp and remained with showers throughouut the day.Plans for some of the outer jobs [exit gate area] changed a little.Spent about an hour in the tunnel earlier on this morning doing the usual check on watering feeding etc.The greenhouse was fine for similar.On return home in the afternoon i headed to the bottom garden to see about filling some of the tubs there with clay,compost etc.They have only been added in the last few days.Three of them have been filled and prepared for to grow some vegetables to suit the successional sowings of more Beetroot [Beta vulgaris],Carrots [Daucus carota] etc,for most of their final sowings,over the coming weeks and no longer.Some of the Beetroot will go on into July.Time is getting short for them now.

Fair play to Orla. I wouldn't even sow in a SITTING POSITION, let alone on my knees.
