April Allotment update!

Weather has been pretty good (compared to the Lake District anyhow!) in Edinburgh today ... and we managed a few hours down at the Allotment late this afternoon.

All looking in reasonably good order now - but still not consistently warm enough to plant any of our substantial crops (potatoes, broad beans, onions etc.) ... I'd say we're at least "a month behind" last year!

We did see some allotment-colleagues planting their tatties, but I'm not convinced the next few days will definitely be completely frost (and snow!) free? Maybe we'll go for it next weekend ...

... meantime, badly need to catch up on e-mails, twitter. facebook: all the joys of modern life.
