Planting out at last

It looks as though the threat of frost has been lifted for the next ten days at least, and the waters of the spring monsoon have receded somewhat. So we’ve made a start on planting out the broad beans, a mixture of a modern variety called Greeny, and some heritage seeds swapped with our friends at Allotments4All.

and a Charles Ross apple tree. The poor thing has already started to come into leaf, so it’s well overdue going into the ground. But with luck it will survive and establish itself over the coming season.

More beans tomorrow, then maybe onions?
