Work on the fields week ending 12th April 2019

peasEarly peas are sown! Now that’s a sign of the season moving on. All the red basil is pricked out into pots. Other items sown include more lettuce.

Another hot compost no dig bed has been prepared for planting with just another two to do and a path to build in-between. These beds are filling up rapidly now that the growing season is really here.

Every day at the moment the poly tunnels are having to be opened early on and closed late afternoon. Plenty of watering of seedlings needed daily. Including Saturdays and Sundays. The vast swings of temperature from overnight frost to warm and sunny afternoons is what does the damage to the seedlings.
