Well I guess I'm not unique but this season, following a combination of flu and the bad weather, I am way way behind. Further behind than I can ever remember. Just a few broad beans on the plot, not showing. Nothing in the propagator yet. The only consolation being that with such a cold start to the growing season there is plenty of time to catch up.

At the end of last week (before the weekend snow) I made a quick inspection trip to the allotment and saw something that lifted my spirits - the early signs of a few ranunculus peeping through the mulch. I hope the cold snap over the weekend did not do too much damage. I am not entirely sure how hardy they are.

Anyway the plan is to make a bit of progress tomorrow and Wednesday. Buds will be bursting before we know it!

Just dicovered that barley is a superfood. Made nice risotto with it last night Takes much longer than rice but better for you, tastier and cheaper!

Bought a bare rooted apple tree but this weekend, when I was going to plant it, there's a frost/light snow/very cold weather forecasted. It is in a cool place at the moment (porch) but I just noticed it's showing leaf buds.

Is it best to plant or leave it. Am a bit worried that it's going to continue to sprout more leaves if I leave it as it is.
