You may recall that earlier this month (8th) I said;

Usually I wait until my Snowdrops have appeared before I start sowing but strangely they have not appeared yet, ???? plus my spring bulbs do not seem to be as far forward as they usually are at this time of year.

Maybe this cold frosty snap might push them on a bit!

Well I saw my first snowdrop this morning so I prepared my hot bed and switched it on.

Might start on Monday or Tuesday as it might take me until then to regulate the temperature on my hotbed.

The thermostat switch on the bed  I find does not necessarily give the temperature it says on the control so I stick a soil thermometer into the sand,  then when it records the reading I want,  I take note of the setting on the control switch and fix it with tape so that it does not move if I accidentally bump into it as I often do.

So with a bit of luck the Onions will be sown early next week and hopefully I will have another successful year like last.

I am looking for a new rotovator.  Have around 600 to spend.  Wondering what type to go for. I have seen one of these wheeled models

Does anyone have any knowledge of those machines.  Wonder if I am better looking at a rear driven one or one without wheels
