True to my word today I planted my shallots. Fifty in total which takes up more than half of one veg bed. Already I’m wondering if I might have space issues with the extra stuff I’ve sown this year, plus the red onions.

I also had a half-hearted go at digging over two more of the vegetable beds, but to be honest I’m jiggered.

I’ve also been thinking about fuchsias. I was going to buy some plug plants, but now I’m considering taking cuttings from existing plants, though to be honest, with the vine weevil attack, my existing plants are a bit limited as far as ‘cutting’ material is concerned. Watch this space.
