Good morning. Yesterday's weather was gorgeous and today looks like being similar.
Two pieces of good news from yesterday.
The first is that I have tiny baby tomatoes - plants, I mean, not fruit! I'm trying seven different varieties this year, different colours and types. I should have room for three of each kind at home and definitely one of each kind at the allotment, more if there are convenient spaces for them. Any spares can be given away to neighbours and friends.
The second is that from April 12th the Heart and Sole local walks resume. There are a few restrictions - distancing, masks at start and finish, but how great is that! I will have a good look at the new timetable and see what I can fit in.
I want Beth to buy the pattern anyway, which is from Etsy (supporting small businesses, etc), and I will have a go.
I've arranged to go over to Jackie's on Friday morning so something to look forward to.
Today's allotment task is mowing and strimming the grass. It does need doing again - the rain and the warmer temperatures have caused a growth spurt. That's before breakfast. The time change means that I now wake up just before seven - absolutely perfect for me although it does mean that I'm not getting my blogs up super-early any more.
And finally, in the afternoon, Val is coming over for a face to face garden chat. I'm so looking forward to that too.
