150 sq ft plot ready, changed the configuration to 15ft x 10ft for this season. Also more than doubled the depth to 4ft, although this will settle by around 6 inches in time. Will get soil test in due course, and yet to decide on seed, but leaning towards my own 756 which was a good orange, and a perfect shape. Sowing is still 3 months off, but nice to be making progress!

Rain, rain, rain, bit of snow, rain, a week frozen and more rain.... so no progress in the outside patch. Sowed a selection of tomatoes at the weekend; I know it's early, but my best results last season were grown on cutting raised plants from an early sowing.

Ist sowing of pumpkin & squash made on 28th March. Potted on from 3" to 7" pots today. Only about 50% germination, but rest of seeds are still firm. Started a few more, particularly squash, as backup. Busy weekend on the patch, raised beds for marrow, FP, BG, & LG all finished but still irrigation to lay. Planting pumpkin & squash in the Polytunnels should start in 2 weeks, depending on night temperatures.
