Tasks for THIS weekend

This weekend (third of the year), the book suggests you plant Horseradish "thongs". Only for the brave as it spreads rapidly and has deep roots. We don't seem to have inherited any at the new allotment so I might risk some in the "wild" are I have planned behind the polytunnel.

Also sow another batch of Broad Beans. Now that is a good idea. Just make sure the mice & voles don't beat you to them!

How much I'll get done this weekend is debateable. I need to fight off the cold I've caught before venturing out. We started planting up a shade tolerant flower bed under the trees in the garden and I bought a pale yellow Hellebore that will take pride of place. Just wait for the rain to stop and the wind to drop.....
