I have sown four rows of early potatoes some garlic and onions in the left hand side in front of the fruit beds. My Dad has been a complete star and nurtured my seedlings in his greenhouse this year. This was a calculated move as he seems to have very green fingers. He has things in his raised herb bed that could have a walk on part in a remake of 'Day of the Triffids'! He gives me regular updates as to how my babies are coming along. Next month they'll be out of nursery school, into long trousers and living on the allotment.
