January blows

Progress is 3 steps forwards and two steps back, or is it vice versa?

The ground is still too wet to work, and low and behold we had a light drizzle of rain tonight- just super!!
Seed potatoes bought, well some to get started. Egyptians and early yellows.Peas to be sown tomorrow.

After struggling with Css ,dreamweaver,and whatever this and that programme's name is the result here(or there). i believe it works.
On to a more important topic watch when pruning roses, their thorns are particularly nasty at this time of the year.
Check your cauliflowers for green maggots,they can be picked off by hand.
Also check the pointed green things-the things that look like green pointed cauliflowers from mars.
Enjoy Brocoli and Aple soup

Wet Sunday

The rain falls steadily and has for the last 2 days. The soil is wet- too much clay here for my liking-it will take a few days to dry out.Nothing that a few lorry loads of organic dynamite won't cure.
We wait to plant onions.

Evidence of active Tutta Absoluta, which is very worrying considering we are in January.
Resistance cable - not the easiest thing to find in Pedreguer
