Other jobs on the plot

Start evening walks around the plot checking for slugs and snails. The best time is just as it’s getting dark and after rain. Collect any you find in a lidded pot and release them at least 100 metres away in a wood or a park etc.

Liquid feed established crops fortnightly. Make further batches of nettle and comfrey liquid feed.

Regularly check greenhouse plants and pots for watering – on sunny days they may need daily watering, ideally in the evening or early morning.

Earth up potatoes as they grow.

As broad beans grow taller they may need supporting with canes and string.
