Things have been moving apace this week . With the Cropshare volunteers doing an amazing job on the onion set and broad bean planting . Me getting the potatoes planted , even though the planter played up , things are looking much better . And now this bit of rain will get the sown parsnips , beans , carrots and beetroot moving . I cant wait to see them . Yes , that is how sad I am . I am really looking forward to see them emerge . The Autumn sown beans are coming on apace and look better with every day that passes . The new chickens are laying more and more eggs , light rain is falling , sun is shining (on and off) , lambs are jumping up and down as though on pogo sticks and the soil is warm enough for me to put my bottom on(long johns up , of course!) . What more could any middle aged fenland farmer want.
