Catch-up planting for Spring

Simon bought some tomato seedlings this week: a black Russian, beef steak and some Roma seedlings. We've popped them in with a light sprinkling of lime.

Also got some potatoes going. We ran out of garden space so have 3 tubers in a foam box and a plastic crate! Hopefully they'll do okay.

Planted them with lots of compost and sugarcane mulch. Am hoping they won't be "overcooked" and end up with hollow, black centres! We shall see.

I have also just planted some marigold seeds around our orchard trees - apple, plums, olive. A good companion plant that brings in helpful bugs.

The weather is starting to heat up now with this week in the high 20s to 30s.
