I have done a lot in the last while. I put in a few broad bean seedlings that I had started in the growhouse. I have put some plastic boxes over them as cloches.
Today I popped in a few broad bean seeds, also under a plastic box cloche that has been warming the soil for two weeks.
I also made some beer traps for the slugs. They really do work. Simply sink a plastic cup in the earth so the top is level with the soil, half fill with beer. Then prop anything like a plate on a couple of stones over the top (to stop it filling with rain)... and that is it. Slug graveyard.
I put two in where I will soon be puttin my earliest peas and beans, and one in my large coldframe.
I am really pleased with the large cold frame. made it myself and it is big, strong and hopefully will shelter too. I sowed a few scallions (spring onions) in it just to see how effective it is. I noticed some weeds beginning to grow inside it, so the soil must be warming up.
The compost bin got turned over into the other side. I had more compost than I thought.
I also dug and weeded the row for the early spuds.
Also, I sat back and admired the daffodils and crocus.
