What's happening - May in pictures

May 2011, we've had a very dry and the hottest April since records began, and now have the wind to dry things out even more so deperately need some rain.

Early spuds, some under cover, before being ridged up May 3rd in case of an overnight frost

Martin rotovating a tunnel ready to plant tomatoes into, May Day Bank Holiday
Runner beans just transplanted, ready early after a hot April, but not enjoying the windy days after they were planted.
Lettuce and brassicas ready to transplant
Rainbow chard looking very pretty, but just starting to go to seed!
Wild Rocket spring re-growth
Lettuces under fleece, not pretty but it gets us an early crop

We have a few strawberries in a polytunnel, ripening up very early, May 2nd, after a very hot April

Hundreds of leek tranplants waiting for rain so they can spread their roots out in the field
