Busy weekend on the croft

Still bitterly cold but sunny this weekend, ground outside is till too wet to work so most of the work is still being done in the polycrub.

Latest batch of seeds have been sown in modules in the polycrub. 

  • Courgettes –  yellow, black and ambassador 
  • Butternut squash – Waltham 
  • Runner beans – our own seed and moonlight F1
  • Yellow French beans – roquencourt 

Also lifted over wintered rocket as it had got very bitter. 

Applied nematodes to the polycrub to kill the slugs 

Made ventilation slots above the doors in the polycrub to allow for some cooling on days when the sun shines but it is cold outside, much like this weekend. 

Moved the 4 hog lambs from Road Park to North Park and unless it is truly appalling night of weather they will stay outside
