Typically, just as we are about to move house, we have finally got a couple of big frogs and lots of spawn in our little pond. At the same time we could do with cutting back some of the plants close to the pond. Is this likely to scare the frogs away? Also, we have a very overgrown lily in the pond- will this cause them any problem (getting tangled in the roots etc.)

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!
