Another frost overnight. In some years, April has been almost frost free. Not this year!

Minus 5 °C inside the polytunnel two night’s ago. I think that’s the coldest recorded this winter. The temperature also shows the high of 39 °C. That’s the remarkable feature of a polytunnel - any direct sunshine rapidly heats up the temperature inside it even on the coldest days.

I like to sow seeds relatively late, as the risk of frost wastes seeds and creates more work trying to protect plants that don’t like the cold. This spell of cold weather has spurred me on to start sowing my French beans and squash, I’m hoping it will be followed by warmer weather that lasts.

It seems to be a good year for broccoli. All around the allotment there are plants covered in spears. I felt fortunate to take these home from my plot yesterday.

Signs of spring, leaf buds forming on the blueberry bushes. I don’t remember them being so colourful.

I believe this is a house sparrow? Spotted on my lockdown walk at the weekend, enjoying flying into and away from a hedgerow, accompanied by its mate.

I think there’s something magical about seeing seeds germinate. This is a tomato seed starting its journey.
