Our veggie plot is coming on. The potatoes have been in for a while, First Earlies, and they have been earthed up several times already. The Dwarf French Beans were part of yesterday’s purchase as were the Sweetcorns. We used to grow Sweetcorn when we lived in Yorkshire. This is our first attempt here. I’ll be planting the Sugar Snap peas tomorrow, then the brassica bed and then everything will be in there. The edible trough has Pak Choi and Lettuce seeds beginning to come through. The Nasturtiums have yet to show. Yesterday’s 6 lettuces became 3 overnight! The slugs ate well.
William Shakespeare was born on this day, died on this day too. The Tempest is one of my favourite plays.
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in’t!”
