Spuds and Peas

I've been to the plot today and built a bean frame from bamboo canes. I planted some baby mange tout plants and sowed some peas.

I have planted my 1st early and 2nd early potatoes.

Westland chicken poo was on a buy-one-get-one-free offer at The Range, so I bought four 3kg boxes.  I have scattered two boxes around the plot and have saved two for later.

The rain came down like stair-rods for a while so I sheltered in the shed and made a curtain for the window from weed suppressant fabric and twine. I have left it open for the time being as my maincrop spuds are still chitting.
