Work continues

My afternoon off today so more work in the garden.

Planted some first early Potatoes - Epicure - 12 inches apart in rows 24 inches apart. The first bed had been mulched a few weeks ago with newspaper, covered with fym. The second had been mulched with half the contents of the compost bin.

This was followed by the creation of a new Strawberry bed - on the ground I cleared last year. Planted the transplants 12 inches apart in alternating rows.

Finally before heading home I checked on the dwarf French Bean seedlings - Purple Tepee - planted last night in a bed in the polytunnel. This has been mulched with straw over the winter, and the seedlings were covered with a layer of fleece to be on the safe side.
