Beautiful morning. Blue sky, small areas of cirrus. Sheep (I think) grazing on the green hill across the river. Ate my porage with the kitchen door open as it was almost too warm otherwise. The kitchen window faces east so the kitchen has been warming up since sunrise.
Began filling and planting my new alpine bowl from Heathhall Garden Centre – an Errington Reay product in salt glazed earthenware. Put the remains of a bag of compost on the vegetable bed and added more home made compost from our own bin. Also began earthing up the potatoes.
Whilst out doing Tesco shopping I called in at Brambles and bought two “Alicante” tomato plants and got them in the ground in the greenhouse quickly. I followed Monty Don’s advice and buried them deeply.
