Saturday 01 March, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Following my negative news post about the failure of some of the winter crops, we did have some luck this winter, or so it would seem so far. In the main though, the warm wet winter didn’t do much for the veggies; apart from these…

    Oh, this is great!! I would love to have a greenhouse and be able to do this! But you are inspiring me now that perhaps I should get some seeds going right now for spring…I don’t think I have ever had the forethought to start this early!
