A beautiful day

Sun is shining, wind is drying the washing, and it still is mild enough for growth in my new veg bed. Two rows of onions (50 bulbs in each), one row of garlic and 3 rows of broad beans all doing well so far!
Some odd bits of netting from the old garden - so far nothing has challenged the somewhat rough protection! We do get hares in the fields sometimes.
I prefer autumn sowings to get an early start on crops, we are heavy users of onions (currently buying 1 kg every two weeks) so I may need to do more somehow.
Best thing on TV this Xmas?  the allotment show! (the only film I shall be watching? Tintin!
