I was pleasantly surprised when i took the polyethylene off my raised bed yesterday to check progress, the spuds are just peeking above ground and the garlic and onions are well sprouted after only a couple of weeks.

My window sill is looking good too and I will be planting out broccoli and cauliflower plants into the raised bed a couple of weeks.

When I look at the photos I think I am doing quiet well. When I get to grips with uploading photos I will post them. The weather is meant to warm up from tomorrow so spuds are going in on St Patricks day as per tradition. First lot of cabbages, kale and beetroot really good. Onions and garlic are doing well surprisingly as the ground froze after i planted them. Rhubarb really good,but the cucmbers are driving me mad, nothing showing at all, so maybe like last year I have to try again with new seeds.

Has anyone noticed how the forsythia is full of colour earlier this year, wonder does this mean that we won't have so much cold weather.

By the way Nozebleed, there are free stalls on Saturday morning in the Drogheda market if you fancy selling any of your produce!!
