|Chitted Rocket Potatoes|
Forked over a patch of ground where last years leeks had grown. Made a line of green string between two forks and dug a trench a spade deep all along. A handful of GroMore fert along the row. Hoed it in and then scattered a tub of chicken manure pellets over the soil, hoeing that in as well.
Spaced each potato about a foot apart from each other and planted them, green eye up.
Marked the rows with bamboo canes, raked over and job done. Peter Rabbit polished off nearly all my cauliflowers early on. I covered up the cabbages with garden fleece. He didn't like that and left them alone, so hopefully, still might get a few spring greens yet.
Blue sky and sunshine all day. The cherry blossom's really come out today. it's lovely.
My hellebore's out.
And the miniature daffies are out in the front border.
A few weeks ago I bought quite a few packets of end of season bargain bulbs from Coedy. They were only 20p each, far too cheap to leave there. Anyway, they seem to be growing OK. I covered them with wire baskets to stop the pesky cats digging them up which they did without fail practically every morning. They've not yet figured how to get around that one. Molly 1 - Cats 0.
