>Oh dear, I have got a bit ahead of myself on the allotment. Rather like when feeling really happy I always think it will last for ever, so it was with the blissful weather. Two weeks ago with the sun on my back I sowed courgettes, squash, borlottiand French beans in pots here at home. They rocketed through the compost and in the warmth of the pop up greenhouse they very quickly reached a sturdy size. Yesterday I planted them out on the allotment thereby guaranteeing sub-zero temperatures any day now. However because it’s a month early I covered with cloches and will keep you informed.
