We then put in two rows of first early potatoes. We followed the old advice and mowed round the lawn first and put some nice fresh grass clippings in the bottom of the trench.
After a sit down and a cup of tea we planted a row of peas. These I covered by laying pea sticks over the drill because we not only have fat pigeons hanging about but several pheasants! When the peas come up the peas sticks can be put upright, The pea sticks were made from the enormous cuttings we took off the front hedge last August.
By this time we had managed to accumulate quite a pile of tools.
All of the tools have to be gathered up and taken back to the shed by the house. Yep, that one in the far distance. Given the rate of rural crime in we always take care to put everything away.
Tried something new for tea. The prepacked fresh cod looked a bit limp, so divided this into 2-3 inch chunks and dipped them a thick batter and fried in shallow pan of veg oil. Because small chunks they only took a few minutes. Much better than a limp fillet!
