Deadish potato plant

Something got one of the potato plants. I don't know what. I think I'll dig it up.

Dwarf curly Kale

Due to the the pigeons destroying my main crop of Kale I have sown some Fothergill's Kale Dwarf green Curled Borecole.

We gave up on the second sowing of Bulb Fennel due to excessive weeds and with attempt to sow again. I need more space to put tomatoes out and the only real space left is next to a tree. I've dug and removed some roots and will get the tomatoes in next time I have the time.


Nope. Sage!

Tomatoes and Comfrey.

On the plot early today.
The main task was preping an early for some tomatoes.
It looks like some of the weed have turned out to be comfrey and possibly borage. So I've left them be. I've edged the bed with marjoram and some lettuce.
