Yesterday I had friends with me: we popped in quickly at the allotment and had some fun picking leeks - the earth is so compacted they snapped broken!
Tonight after work I just had enough time to
- reinforce my pond's barriers (there were suspiciuos floating leaves severed from the water plants),
- water the seedling (which are all doing fine) just in case it is going to rain for the next three days and I can't access the greenhouse, and
- pick my first crop of rhubarb: 5 stalks. They smelled beautifully when I took them off. However, the leaves were already open, so I hope I did not leave them too long and I am going to poison myself with oxalic acid.
