Monday, May 4

May's diary has now been begun - time flies when you're having fun!

The rain that fell on several days last week was most welcome. It magically turned areas where our soil had become rock hard clay into a workable medium that we could dig, plant and weed.

The wind was far less welcome with some plants especially the cardoons suffering from the battering that it gave them. The broad beans plants are now leaning westwards. Hopefully a period of calm weather will see them right themselves.

By the way the hawthorn – May blossom is now out and so we can officially start to cast our clouts. The only problem is that at the moment they are cast they seem to need putting back on again!
