Early this morning I went over to the plot to take some photos.
Since coming back from NZ I've been generally tidying up the plot,adding a couple more "no walk,less dig" beds on another part of the very clayey area, sown spuds,peas ,broad beans,onion sets grown on in modules,carrots and parsnips.
I held off from sowing the two root crops until their due dates on http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/
adjusted for Lancaster last frost date. So far the carrots sown in 2nd week of April are a no show and the parsnip seed only went in last week.

|Still some sprouting broccoli to be had|
|Also some chard.Have already taken a cut a few weeks ago.|
|Lower area revamped with improved no walk beds,mulch store, and boundary bed planted up with gooseberries,redcurrant and more rhubarb.|
