Well it is that time of year again and spurred on by a fantastic course given by Charles Dowding the plot is ready for action! I have spread a layer of gorgeous mulch all over the plot, kindly dumped by the wonderful Jim Buckland. This will help to supress the weeds, keep in moisture in and provide a really good sowing medium. I want to grow some nuts this year and some cut flowers too. I think that growing a few more perennial crops as well as flowers will help to reduce the labour a little. That is the theory! At this point I am always in a frenzy deciding what seeds to buy! The potatoes are chitting and all we need now is for the spring weather to arrive! It has to be a better year this year- doesn’t it?
