3 rows of mini spuds planted.

Half the leeks harvested,  but about half have bolted so they went onto the compost heap.

As I prepared the soil for the spuds, I found a few dozen baby onions, so they will be replanted.

The leeks were hiding loads of volunteer strawberry plants in flower. I may space them out, but at the moment I shall leave them where they are.

Harvested the last of the leeks and dug the raised bed over, made a trench where the peas, beans and tomatoes will go and filled it with home-made compost.

Transplanted loads of volunteer onions, and the errant Verbenas.

Set the posts and wire for the peas, beans and tomatoes.

Mowed the lawn.

Stuffed the green bin.

It's getting tidy out there at last.  :)

Start hardening-off the tomatoes.

Transplanted more catmint into the wall planters. A few days in the greenhouse and then they should be OK to go out where the cats can't reach them. The smell as I transplanted them attracted Solver, Charbon and 2 of next doors' cats. With no aggro until I closed the greenhhouse!

Peas and 2 types of bean planted out, plus 1 tomato to see how it fares.

Chillies out to the greenhouse for the day later.

The cherry toms in the greenhouse are already flowering.
