|The sowing table|
I've sown a bunch of salads, radishes and little round carrots under my new mini cloches, courtesy of Lidl. I've snapped up four of them and am using them to warm up the ground for the peas, protect the onions (and later the peas and brassicas) from the thieving blackbirds.

|The new veg growing area|
Another new arrival in the middle paddock is rhubarb. My neighbour gave me a couple of hardy plants for my birthday. Hopefully they'll thrive in their bed, which we'd painstakenly covered in manure last autumn before covering it with more black plastic.
The black plastic has already been moved onto next year's new growing area, which will be a lot smaller. Jim is contemplating a little tobacco grove there. Has anybody got experience of growing tobacco from seed?
