There has been much hard work done over the past few weeks digging the ground, weeding and soil improving. Most seeds have yet to be sown or to show above ground level. Some early plantings were dug up by rabbits and a nice patch of strawberry plants were eaten by deer that roam freely around our village at night. Our village shop is still selling onions that I grew last year and have stored over winter in my garage. I am planning a wider range of vegetables this year, but will have to see what the local wildlife allows me to grow.
