Tomorrows plans.

26 March 2010 21:48:20
No work will be done in the vegetable garden for another while except regular visits to the tunnel and a walk aroung the outer beds.Some more notes will be taken.Hopefully the weather will be on the gardeners sides tomorrow.Reading reports it does not sound to bright for next week with snow on the way.Some of the trays left out in the sun earlier have been taken back to the seed room around 4 o clock.Those on the hardy side such as Broad beans [Vicia faba,] and some Peas [Pisum sativum,] will stay in the greenhouse.Now that the off putting weather is on the cards,coverings for trays will be arranged tomorrow to have all in place when called upon.All canes are in place in the tunnel and will be given the final touches next week.[Pictures will be added]

I have my peas in work planted outdoors now. I hope they will be ok. I also have runner beans, they have germinated outdoors. Just noticed them today.
