Warming up

We've finally braved the weather and put some seeds straight in the ground. We put in dwarf French beans 'cupidon' but made them cosy under a blanket of fleece just in case. We also planted out Brussel sprout seedlings and Kale seeds went into the same bed. As brassicas do better under cover, away from caterpillars etc., we covered these too in fleece.
We've had field beans growing through the winter as a green manure and these got chopped up today to rot down to release well needed nitrogen.
